Socket 939 was introduced by AMD in June 2004 to supersede the previous Socket 754 for Athlon 64 processors. Socket 939 has been succeeded by Socket AM2, although Socket 939 is still popular. It is the second socket designed for AMD's AMD64 range of processors.

Availability

It was made available in June 2004 and replaced by AM2 in May 2006. AMD has reduced the production of this socket to focus on current and future platforms, although demand is currently very high[citation needed].

Both single and dual-core processors were manufactured for this socket under the Athlon 64, Athlon 64 FX, Athlon 64 X2, Sempron and Opteron names. The Opteron 185 and Athlon 64 FX-60, both featuring a 2.6 GHz clock speed and 1 MB of Level 2 cache per core, were the fastest processors manufactured for this socket.


Technology

It supports dual channel DDR SDRAM memory, with 6.4 GB/s memory bandwidth. Socket 939 processors support 3DNow!, SSE2, and SSE3 (revision E or later) instruction sets. It has one HyperTransport link of 16 bit width that can run as fast as 2000 MT/s. Processors using this socket have 64KB each Level 1 instruction and data caches, and either 512KB or 1 MB Level 2 cache.

Socket A - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (205 words)
Socket A (also known as Socket 462) is the CPU socket used for AMD processors ranging from the Athlon Thunderbird to the Athlon XP/MP 3200+, and AMD budget processors including the Duron and Sempron.
The socket is a zero insertion force pin grid array type with 453 pins (nine pins are blocked in the socket to prevent accidental insertion of Socket 370 CPUs, hence the number 462).
Socket A is considered a discontinued architecture (replaced by socket 754 and socket 939), although chips and motherboards are still in circulation.
