AMD Slashing Prices on Phenom II and FX CPUs

Posted February 29, 2012 by Sam Chen in News

In with the new, out with the old.

Due to AMD’s recent release of two new FX processors, the FX-4170 and FX-6200, AMD is slashing prices on a whole slew of older CPUs from the Phenom II X2 all the way up to the FX-8120 Black Edition. While it’s not a firesale, any discount is definitely welcome especially considering how Intel’s Sandy Bridge processors have pretty much been the show lately.

According to the chart below from CPU-World, the price cuts will range from ~2 to ~15% with the Phenom X4 965 getting the largest discount at 14.8%. Pricing at Amazon and Newegg still appear unchanged, but hopefully they will be adjusting in the coming days.

CPU-World is also reporting the release of a couple more AMD APUs such as the A6-3620 and the A8-3820 as well, so if you’re interested in some more details hop on over to the link below!
