CPU World reports AMD updated its official processor price list. The chip designers lowered the pricing of all Athlon II processors, as well as some A-series APUs. The APUs receive price cuts between 3.7% and 21.7%, while the Athlon II series gets a reduction between 14.7% and 31.6%. See the table below for a full overview.
The most heavily discounted processors are Athlon II X4 640 and X2 265. Their prices were dropped by 31% and 30% respectively. The remaining Athlon II X3 and X4 parts received 14.5% - 21% price reductions, and they are now firmly in the Pentium price range. Dual-core Athlon IIs and A4-Series products are now priced from $36 to $48, which means that they are positioned against Intel Celeron line. Yesterday's price cuts also included one "Piledriver" APU, A4-5300, which is now 11% cheaper. In addition to A4-Series products, AMD shaved a few dollars off the prices of A6-3670K, A8-3850 and A8-3870K first-generation APUs.

Two Athlon II processors were removed from the pricelist, possibly because they were discontinued. These are Athlon II X3 445 and X4 638.
