AMD's latest roadmap revealed the shocking detail about Socket 754
Socket 754 shipments outlast socket 939 but AMD prepares the transition over to socket AM2

AMD has been performing very well in terms of delivering new products to the masses as well as ensuring that shipments are on time. With regards to processors and platforms, AMD is now in a position where it can diversify at its own pace and not have to be in Intel's shadow.

This year, we will be seeing a great deal of things happening with AMD's processors as well as the sockets that hold them. Coming with these changes will be new motherboards as well as opportunities for new platforms. We last reported on AMD's next-generation generation socket F, which is a LGA-type socket with 1207 pins. The new socket will be home to AMD's upcoming dual-core as well as quad-core Opterons.

Despite the need for more complex interfaces to support multi-core processors, AMD's existing socket 754 will be outlasting the more complex socket 939. Currently, socket 939 is home to AMD's Athlon 64, Athlon 64 X2 and Athlon 64 FX processors while socket 754 is for Sempron. According to AMD documentation, all socket 939 processors will stop shipping Q2 2007 with final orders occurring nearly half a year before end-date. AMD Roadmaps have socket 939 end of life (EOL) in Q4'06, while socket 754 is EOL Q4'07.

For socket 939 processors, the first to fall off the charts will be Athlon 64 processors based on Venice core, with last orders occurring in the Q2 of this year and shipments stopping by the end of Q4. Athlon 64 processors based on San Diego will see similar results starting in Q4. Interestingly, while the Athlon FX 60 recently just launched, AMD will be taking final orders in Q4 of this year. Athlon X2 processors based on socket 939 will stop shipping in Q2 2007 with final orders being taken in Q4 of this year. Processors based on socket 754, such as AMD's Sempron will be continuing to ship well into 2007 and cease near the end of the year.

The move is to transition motherboard manufacturers over to AMD's new socket AM2, which is a unified socket architecture designed to hold both Athlon and Sempron processors,  while Socket S1 will feature upcoming dual-core Turions. Processors based on the new AM2 interface will begin shipping later this year.
