The first to get cut are the FX-72, down from $799 to $599, ?and FX74, from $999 to $799. Before you wonder why these prices were and still are so high, remember, these are the quad-core packages which come in pairs.

Much more interesting?though, are the price changes taking place for the X2’s, some of which are quite drastic.

New AMD Athlon 64 X2 Prices
Model Previous Price New Price
X2 6000+ $464 $241
X2 5600+ $326 $188
X2 5200+ $232 $178
X2 5000+ $222 $167
X2 4800+ $217 $136
X2 4400+ $170 $121
X2 4000+ $144 $104
X2 3800+ $113 $83
X2 3600+ $102 $73

The recently launched X2 6000+ see’s almost a 50% price reduction, but?I expect?the mid range area will excite the most. This certainly boosts the appeal of the X2 range for budgeteers, at least?until Intel follow suit with there own price cuts.
