    Title says it all, is the 3200 the last of the 32 bit processors before the change to 64 bit??
    Here are my specs:
    System Specs: ATX generic case with Antec 550 watt power supply. ASUS A7N8X Deluxe Motherboard. Western Digital 7,200 RPM 40 gig IDE Hard Drive.(NTFS- file system) AMD Athlon XP 2600 processor.(standard fan and heatsink-Thoroughbred Core-standard speed-NO OVERCLOCK) 1 gig of Samsung DDRAM(PC 2700- 333 mhz....2-512mb sticks running in dual channel mode).Ati Radeon 8x 9600 XT (8x is enabled on motherboard). Soundblaster Audigy 2 sound card. Motorola sb 5100 cable modem (Insight Communications-Cable Connection) BenQ 16x DVD- RECORDER.(records -R/-RW or +R/+RW and CD-R formats) LG 52x32x52 CD Burner. Zip 100 internal drive and a generic 3.5 floppy drive. Windows XP Professional Operating System. I also have a HP Deskjet 3520 inkjet printer and a KDS X Flat 17 inch CRT monitor.

    Will somebody answer this? It is just a simple question.

    I doubt it. AMD will probably continue making 32 bit procs as its budget models, at least until 64 bit starts to catch on

    I think theyneverknew is right, the 32 isn't dead yet, Athlon 64 isn't selling yet, the'll be on the market as long as the 64 bit proc. doesn't have a cheap series to replace them!

    Do you mean "32-bit only"? Cuz the 64 does both...

    FX5900 - 3DMark2001 [20,566] - 3DMark2003 [7,281] - Aquamark3 [56,694]

    Yeah, I meant 32 bit ONLY.

    Well, i could be wrong, but nvidia made a slip up some time ago, saying that their nforce2 chipset would be compatible with the upcoming 200fsb chips. Since they have nforce3 for 64bit, expect next generation of chips to have 200FSB.
    Again, this is just what I assume. by no means this is fact.

    The 3200 is a 200mhz FSB!!!! I don't think that is a slip up :-)

    Why would you want a 32bit only chip when the opteron is currently showing higher performance per clock than the athlon? just don't run a 64bit op sys, then you will have a 32bit chip that outperforms the current athlon clock for clock.

    If you want a chip to fit in your current board then you will have to be running something that supports the 400mhz FSB and it is possible AMD will release an athlon 3400 running at 2.3 or 2.4.

    They have done everything in the last year to improve the performance of their chips without putting the core clock above 2.2, I think that it really is the end of the line (or nearly!) for the current athlon, but all is not lost the athlon has become the athlon64 and, yes, this should clock higher and offer better performance per clock. (if you only want 32bit then just use a 32 bit op sys)

    In short the athlon has not ended it just needs a new socket :-). Something that if you were an intel user you would need every few weeks anyway LOL

    That is a problem because new socket= new motherboard! I just got my asus a7n8x put in! Sheesh!
