AMD cuts price of Phenom X3 - again

Posted on Wednesday, September 10 2008 @ 01:37:28 CEST by

TG Daily reports AMD issued another price cut for its Phenom X3 processor lineup:
Today’s price for X3 processors cut is the second within two weeks. AMD now has four regular (95 watt) triple-core processors. The X3 8450 runs for $104 (down from $125 in July), the X3 8650 for $119 (down from $145), the X3 8750 for $129 (down from $175) as well as the new X3 8750 Black Edition with overclocking support, which is priced at $134. Pricegrabber.com average retail price data suggests that the lowest retail prices for AMD triple-core processors are within 5% of AMD’s tray prices.

Also new are 65 watt X3 8450e and 8250e processors with undisclosed prices.

A quick look at Intel’s price sheet reveals that AMD decided to price its X3 processors at the very low-end of Intel’s Core 2 Duo range. The 8450 is priced right between Intel’s budget 45 nm dual-core E5200 ($84) and the regular Core 2 Dup lineup, which begins at $113. AMD’s X2 dual-core CPUs are priced between $66 for the 5000+ version and $92 for the 6000+ model.
