Firingsquad's sharp eyes spotted that AMD has cut prices of several Phenom II and Athlon II processor models:
For instance, the Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition is now selling for $199.99 on Newegg as of today. That's $45 less than the official $245 price tag found on the official AMD CPU price list. And even though AMD still lists the Phenom II X4 945 at $225, on Newegg it now sells for $169.99.

Looking for a triple-core Phenom II CPU? Newegg currently sells the Phenom II X3 720 Black Edition for $119 (list price is $145) The slimmest Phenom II cut goes to the Phenom II X2 550, which is now priced at $102.99. That's actually a little higher than the $99.99 this CPU was selling for a few weeks ago. Finally, AMD trimmed prices on their Athlon II 250. While it's officially listed at $87, Newegg is selling it for $76.
