AMD Sempron to arrive on August 17

Posted on Monday, June 28 2004 @ 15:31:42 CEST by

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.
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.

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.
