In the first quarter of 2007 the AMD Socket AM2 processors will account for 95 percent of the company's shipments:
Socket 1207 will still be in the market in the first and second quarter, accounting for 5% of AMD's CPU shipments, while socket 939 will be discontinued by the end of 2006, according to the chipmaker's plan.

In the third quarter of 2006, AMD will introduce its Stars family of 65nm quad-core CPUs that use socket AM2+, whose proportion of the chipmaker's shipments will climb to about 20% by the fourth quarter, and above 60% by the end of the first quarter in 2008, according to the roadmap.
