AMD Adjusts Some APU, CPU Prices; Introduces New Athlon II Part

AMD, along with launching several new Opteron processors, retouched prices of its socket FM1 accelerated processing units (APUs), across its A-Series. These include tiny price hikes for its lower-end APUs, A4-3300 and A4-3400; a minor price cut for the A6-3500; a price-cut for the FX-6100; and introduction of the new Athlon II X4 651. To begin with, the dual-core A4-3300 and A4-3400 got hiked by $2, sending their prices from $64 and $69, respectively, to $66 and $71, respectively.

On the other hand, the price of A6-3500 is cut from $89 to $85. The six-core FX-6100 socket AM3+ processor saw a $10 price-cut, sending its price down from $165 to $155. Lastly, AMD introduced a new Athlon II processor in the FM1 package, the Athlon II X4 651, AMD's second, after Athlon II X4 631. This quad-core chip has 1 MB L2 cache per core, and is clocked at 3.00 GHz, 400 MHz higher than the Athlon II X4 631.

There was supposed to be a 65w version of the Athlon II X4 631 (2.6ghz). I wonder where that went?

My Athlon II X4 631 is O/Ced to 3.53 and my temps hit 60+. Those temps are with aftermarket cooling as well. So for them to jump 400mhz with this Athlon II X4 651 tells me either they have lowered the temps somehow or I just have a poopy chip...:ohwell:

hmm locked i see. i was thinking of going the APU way for my next build, but using an unlockable phenom ii 555 and a gt 440 or an hd 6670 is cheaper.

$245 is a little too much for the FX-8150 but you have retailers selling them for $25 to $50 more. :eek:
