Does this CPU exist and if not how high can my motherboard go on a cpu

The cpu I'm looking at for my motherboard is a: AMD Athlon X4 550 2.2GHz Quad-Core OEM/Tray Processor


However, when I look it up on ebay and amazon I can't fin it at all.. why is this?

My motherboard is a: ASRock AM1B-M Micro ATX AM1 Motherboard

If I can't get that cpu, how high can I go on my motherboard? I got the sources from pcpartpicker where I made my pc. Thank you in advance!

It may be that no one has that particular processor for sale on eBay.

You're very limited in your choice of CPU for that motherboard. Here is the supported CPU list:

ASRock > AM1B-M

Why isn't the Athlon X4 550 cpu not on the market though?

Just read an article saying it's not out? But the article was made over 6 months ago last year..

I checked the AMD website, and that CPU does not exist in their current lineup. Perhaps AMD has not released it yet.
