Socket 939 expected in limited quantities in Q2
The Inquirer is reporting
AMD will release only 10,000 939-pin Athlon 64 processors in the second quarter of this year. Higher volume is expected in Q3, but it looks like pickings might be a little slim until the second half of the year.
Many enthusiasts have been waiting patiently for AMD's Socket 939 platform, which promises support for dual-channel memory without requiring registered DIMMs. Unfortunately, some motherboard manufacturers may balk at the platform until AMD kicks Socket 939 into high gear.
