I know the FM1 Llano Quad Core Chips without the GPU are not that popular, but I could use one. Just can't seem to find one for sale anywhere.... :S

What gives?

AMD has stopped making Athlon II and PhenomII line of cpu's and given that the AthlonII 638 were rare to begin with you might just be out of luck.

-------------------------
PII 1100T (Extinct)
Asus M4A78T-E (should be Extinct)
4Gb of Corsair XMS3 1600Mhz DDR3 (Going strong)
2x1GB 5850's (On their last lags)
Corsair HX850W (Awsome)
NZXT Phantom case (too ***** big)

Well, the Athlon II 638 is a socket FM1 processor released Feb 2012, so I doubt they have stopped production :

I knew it was a FM1 socket but I didn't know it was so new. The last I heard AMD was killing off the Sempron, Athlon, Phenom lines. but it looks like their just going to kill off the Phenoms.

Man, AMD sure dosen't want to kill off that Athlon name.
