AMD Lowers the Price of its X3 Phenoms Again, Introduces Three New Processors

TG Daily reports that AMD has cut the prices of its triple-core Phenom X3 processors once more. According to Pricegrabber.com, AMD has once again lowered the value of four Phenoms with 5% within the last two weeks. The Phenom X3 8450 now sells 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 unlocked multiplier, which is priced at $134. Furthermore Advanced Micro Devices has released three more "new" X3 processors all featuring a TDP of 65W, 2MB of L3 cache and HyperTransport 3.0. First is the above 2.4GHz Phenom X3 8750 Black Edition which we already mentioned has unlocked multi and is sold as overclocking friendly processor. The other two CPUs include Phenom X3 8450e operating at 2.1GHz and Phenom X3 8250e at 1.9GHz. Last two Phenoms are yet to be officially priced.Source: TG Daily

They are trying hard to get some share of the market from Intel. Well, at least that BE is with a good price :).

Wow, $104 for a Tri-Core. Looks like I have an affordable replacement for my processor.

Very affordable. I like these prices. The quad phenoms are priced right and now you can get a tricore for less than an AMD x2 6000+ on up :D

If its true I feel really sorry for AMD. Hope they really work on a new arch that will bring back money to them. I started to think did AMD really survive based on pure luck or they still have brains left?

This is a hard pick now, Since i don't OC, i dont know whether to get the lower priced Phenom X3's or get a Q6600(or Q6700). BUT, if i get a Q6600 i don't have to waste more money into getting a new Mobo. Then again it could be worth it if it gives me better performance.

In your case get a Q6600 or something in that line or any new Quads. That will be ideal upgrade for you.
