On their main page they have been advertising this 3400+ AMD cpu for $99.99. The odd thing is, the picture shows a 754 socket type. The spec sheet for the cpu on newegg says 939 socket type, BUT it says the HT is 1,600mhz, which is the speed for the 754 socket. On top of that, Newegg is selling an open box verison of the chip with the same specs for $81.99. Whats going on with newegg?<br><br><br><br>
3400+ $99.99 ( <a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16819103023" target="_blank">Link )</a><br><br>
3400+ $81.99 ( <a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16819103023R" target="_blank">Link )</a><br><br>
Misleading AD page: <a href="http://promotions.newegg.com/amd/amd_bundle/index.html" target="_blank">Here.</a>

It's a 754....<br>
what's wrong with the open box? it's cheaper...lol.<br><br>
They just screwed up the 939 thing...<br><br>
They never made a 939 3400+.

As far I can find out, there ain't no 3400+ for socket 939.<br><br>
That has to be an error. Moreover since they sell the $99.99 also in a combo with a Socket 939 MoBo.<br><br>
They better fix it <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">

Just that they repeated their error. Messing up the socket type is a pretty serious thing, and if people buy that combo, they are not going to be happy when it doesn't fit.

It's a new processor, obviously a cut down chip. In one of the reviews a guy said he used it with the 939 motherboard so it must be socket 939.

Weird... I did a google on the number on the CPU:<br>
ADA3400DAA4BY<br><br>
and get plenty hits indicating this is a socket 939 Athlon Socket 939.<br><br>
However, nothing to find on AMD's website...<br><br>
The mystery CPU?

The DAA's are the Venice cores allright.... So odd...<br><br>
I agree with Krunk. The 'egg probably got their hands on a bunch of OEM CPUs....

Kind of like the 3300+ for 754. Called an Athlon64, had an Athlon64 core, but has 256kb of cache and ran at 2.4 ghz.<br><br>
Weird weird things lol.

Actually they did, it was a proprietary unit only sold to IBM and HP. Oddly enough it used a 800MHx HTT. Prt# ADA3400DAA4BZ
