AMD cuts price of some Phenom chips

Posted on Wednesday, August 13 2008 @ 03:12:09 CEST by

AMD has announced a couple of price cuts to make its processor lineup more competitive.
Here are the new prices, which are slightly above the cost to distribution and are ex VAT to represent the cost to retailers and system builders:

  • X4 9850 BE - was $205 - now $194 - down 5.4 percent
  • X4 9550 - was $175 - now $154 - down 12 percent
  • X3 8450 - was £125 - now $104 - down 16.8 percent

    AMD is, as ever, being pragmatic and fighting the fights it thinks it can win. In this case that takes the form of offering the lowest priced quad core available in the form of the 9550 and a triple core for less than Intel's cheapest Core 2 Duo. "We're providing more than dual core at dual core prices," said Buxton.
