Yup. I don't think that all that many S939 X2 chips ever got
produced, and it seems like AMD stopped making them (or at least
really cut back) fairly shortly after the AM2 chips started showing
The X2 3800+ seems especially tough to come by, most places I've
checked are sold out and I kind of doubt that they'll be getting any
more (or at least not in any appreciable quantity). the 4200+ and
higher are available if you look around a bit though. Prices are
about the same as AM2 chips. You can find one here:
$228 CDN for the 4200+
Personally I doubt that the prices are going to drop much on these
chips any time soon. The old supply/demand thing is kicking in, and
supply is very limited with basically no future planned supply.
Basically until these chips start showing up second-hand on eBay, they
probably won't be any cheaper.
