As for the Athlon XP 2800+, 3000+ and 3200+ you will be able to buy there in future until a yet undecided day when they will go the way of all chips as well. This won't happen anytime soon. AMD decided to leave FSB 333 to co-exist with FSB 400 CPUs and motherboards. Not all motherboards can work with FSB 400 as you might know.Source: The Inquirer
From these decisions it's clear that AMD want to make some space for Sempron chips. Sempron should come in 2500+ 2600+ 2800+ and 3100+ variations.
This does not affect mobile chips.
AMD Sempron to arrive on August 17

The Inq received info that the Athlon XP 2700+ and slower socket 462 ships are going to be canned. The last order for 2700+ chips could be placed on Sunday June 27, 2004 over at AMD. Also all the Athlon MP processors are canned, in order to boost the sales of their Opterons.
