AMD is set to put some chip prices up. Sources claim that the processor giant is to raise prices on some of its Opteron S939 CPUs. This is apparently going to happen on the 23rd of this month. However, the company is also seemingly set to lower the price of the top Opteron models at the same time.

AMD will also make changes on several Athlon 64 X2 desktop processors on that date, but the direction of those prices is downwards, with the recent introduction of the Athlon 64 FX 60.

The Opteron 165 939 will rise from $295 to $325, the 170 from $384 to $394, the 175 from $490 to $504. But the Opteron 180 939 pin CPU will drop by a fairly large percentage - from $811 to $693.
