AMD stops production of Socket 939 Opterons

Posted on Sunday, December 11 2005 @ 1:22 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
The Inq reports AMD has stopped production of its Operton 14x and 16x models. These CPUs were pretty good sellers among overclockers as the Opterons with 1MB L2 cache were priced lower than Athlon 64 models with 512KB L2 cache.
Also, those Opteron babies were bad-boys when it comes to cooling, working at 2.7-2.9 GHz with air-cooling - at zero problems, with a lower operating temperature than default-clocked Pentium D 840.

This has come to a close, as we have received a document that goes to show that company has decided to stop production of several different SKU's.
