    Why not release a S939 5000+ 2x ? It saves me in buying half a system upgrade (mobo+mem+proc)

    I'd be quite tempted by a high end 939 myself, but somehow can't see it happening, so I'l simply not be buying a new processor for another year or two :)

    yep, I agree with what you guys are saying... you can't help but feel the move to AM2 really did upset quite a few of the AMD faithful. I don't think we'll see a 939 Black Edition processor though, as S939 chips are no longer in production (afaik). :(

    ROFL....

    *ehm

    yeah, agree. s939 here too. ill buy it without thinking for ~$100, i can get a little better overclock (perhaps) to spice up before Phenom......

    i dont think AMD gets it that people that has AM2 socket already has DDR2 and not rushing to upgrade since theyr going to upgrade the mobo n CPU only... but folks using 939 with DDR1 has more urge to upgrade something to keep them holding on until Phenom pops out, considering they'r 2 generation behind, compared to AM2's 1gen. u get my logic here? pfft........

    sounds like they are trying to make some money to get the next gen out sooner.

    Ive got a 939 board too, though i wouldnt be tempted to get this proc, AM2 doesnt offer any great advantages in my eyes
