AMD lowers prices on X2 CPUs

By Justin Mann on
All AMD fans got a huge present today, as AMD announced across the board price drops for their dual-core X2 line, as well as a few single core price drops as well. Some of the price drops are massive, over 35%. The X2 5600+, for instance, went from a PIB price of $505 down to $326, which is around what the 3800+ cost just a year ago. For those looking to build a machine on a budget, the lower end of the X2 line has been brought down as well, with the newly introduced 3600+ and the infamous 3800+ coming in at $102 and $113, respectively.

The price drops probably have a lot to do with AMD getting ready to move more of their CPUs over to 65nm and to help further phase out socket 939 in favor of AM2.
