Will AMD be releasing a faster socketA processor?

technically i think its going to be the highest speed rated chip

but you can get athlonxp-mobiles and overclock them to 2.5ghz + . the 3200+ is 2.2ghz

Brand name whores are stupid!
Don't expect another SocketA processor, at least one better than the 3200 XP. Some of the new Semprons are SocketA, but obvisuly aren't gonig to compete with the 3200+ XP. Then the higher up Semprons (which still don't really compete with the XP) are Socket754, so AMD has essentially moved away from SocketA.

I don't think any official word has come about this, but this would be my best guess.

Like mentioned below, many of the XP chips overclock very well, I run my 2800+ XP (2.08 ghz) at 2.6 ghz.

AMD won't release a faster Socket A processor. Socket A is finished.

R.I.P Socket A, 'tis been a good friend down the years *sobs*

As everyone said, no more new socket A chips. But a Mobile XP chip can easily OC beyond 2.2GHz (XP3200+) speeds. So pick up one of those and create your own AXP. :wink: 3600+, 3800+, 4000+ ... go for it. To me, the Mobile chips are the true top of the line AXP's, and alot cheaper too.
