Is Athlon 64 socket AM2 = Socket 939 ? Is Athlon 64 3000+, 3200+, 3500+ Always = Venice core ?

  1. I am a bit confused about the AMD naming:

    Is the socket AM2 (for Athlon 64 CPUs) the same as Socket 939 ?

    If not: What are the differences / which is better resp. more future compatible ?

    Do Athlon 64 CPUs with the labels 3000+ or 3200+ or 3500+ ALWAYS have a Venice core
    (= a core with low (67 Watt) power consumption) ?
