AMD slashes prices, adds new Athlon IIs

Admin Topics 111

Well, it had to happen sooner or later. Quietly last night, AMD went ahead and slashed prices on existing Phenom II and Athlon II processors, discontinuing a handful of chips in the process. In addition, the company publicly introduced a handful of new Athlon II CPUs, including low-power and triple-core models. The company’s official price list still says “Effective September 16,” but it’s changed quite a bit since then.
