AMD exercise price drops on three Phenom chips

Posted August 14, 2008 by admin in CPU & Motherboards

First up, the 2.1 GHz Phenom X3 8450 is going down from $125 to $104 (prices for 1000-unit tray quantities) while the 2.2 GHz X4 9550 and the 2.6 GHz X4 9850 Black Edition are sliding from $175 and $205 to $154 and $194 respectively.

With this round of cuts AMD has brought the Phenom X4 9850 pretty much in line with Intel’s popular Core 2 Quad Q6600 and the X4 9550 between two dual-cores – the E8500 and E8400. And the price was wages on.
