Athlon 64 3000+, 3200+ coming to Socket AM2?
When AMD pulled back the curtains on its new line of Socket AM2 processors
on Tuesday, the company announced only two single-core Athlon 64 chips had made the transition to the new socket:
the 3500+ and 3800+. Now, X-bit Labs claims to have word from an AMD representative
Socket AM2 Athlon 64 3200+ and 3000+ processors also exist. The chips
are reportedly priced at $138 and $109-119, respectively. Unlike their officially announced brethren that support 800 MHz DDR2 memory, the 3200+ and 3000+ are said to only support DDR2-667. X-bit Labs says the two chips run at the same clock speeds as the Socket 939 models. The report doesn't make clear whether AMD plans for these chips to make it into retail stores, however.
