AMD to increase Opteron S939 pricing, drop Athlon 64 pricing

Posted on Friday, January 20 2006 @ 22:20:57 CET by

AMD is expected to increase pricing of some of its Socket 939 Opteron processors on January 23rd. The 165, 170 and 175 will become a bit more expensive while the Opteron 180 will get a price reduction.

The reason for the price hike appears to be because AMD wants to stop enthusiasts from buying these chips, and buy consumer level processors instead.

On January 23rd the company will also cut prices of some of its Athlon 64 FX and Athlon 64 X2 desktop processors.

Family Model Current Price New Price (23rd Jan)
Opteron 180 $811 $691
175 $490 $504
170 $384 $394
165 $295 $325
Athlon 64 X2 4800+ $787 $630
4400+ $497 $458
4200+ $400 $355
3800+ $322 $285
Athlon 64 FX FX-60 $1011 $1011
FX-57 $1011 $811
