AMD Socket 939 processors get real cheap

The Inq reports UK vendors are buying the last stocks of AMD's Socket 939 processors. According to their sources these will be the last of socket 939.

One interesting thing about this are the price cuts:
AMD wants to focus on socket AM2 and DDR 2 and wants to get rid of the 939 CPUs. This brought about some amazing price cuts and we learned that you can buy retail AMD Athlon 64 3700+ San Diego 90nm (Socket 939) for £93.94 Including VAT.

An Athlon 64 San Diego 90nm core at 4000+ costs £158.57 including VAT. I don’t think you can get those for much less than that and AMD wants to fight Intel even on the price front. It wants to be ready for some review losses when Conroe arrives.
