The future of Socket 754 is rather slim at this point in time. After AMD announced its Socket 939, the platform that started the era of 64-bit computing quickly started to fade out. And while Socket 939 is currently the attention worthy component of choice, it would be a safe assumption to consider Socket 754 as today’s Athlon XP, which stayed the desired platform for budget buyers for quite some time. Although AMD has publicly announced the fate of Socket 754, it is still a worthy edition to today’s market standards. The only drawback is that you will have to deal with motherboards that were announced in September 2003 or throughout 2004.
