AMD Confirms the Existence of Athlon 64 3200+ and 3000+ for Socket AM2 Platform

We discovered a few mentions of the Athlon 64 3000+ and Athlon 64 3200+ processors for Socket AM2 in the price-lists of some distributors about 10 days before the official platform launch. The day before yesterday it became clear that these processors are not in AMD’s official price-list. Moreover, the Socket 939 Athlon 64 3200+, the price of which has recently dropped from $158 to $138, disappeared from the price-list proving the fact that this model has been discontinued.

We were really interested to find out what really happened to Athlon 64 3200+ and Athlon 64 3000+ processors for Socket AM2 and we addressed our questions to AMD representatives. As we found out, Athlon 64 3200+ (2.0GHz) and Athlon 64 3000+ (1.8GHz) designed for Socket AM2 platform do exist. They feature 512KB L2 cache and support DDR2-667 dual-channel memory. They should be selling at the same price as their Socket 939 counterparts. In fact, Athlon 64 3200+ is assigned the price of $138, while the approximate price of Athlon 64 3000+ lies between $109 and $115.
