AMD Trims Phenom Processor Prices

Paul Lilly

Perhaps taking advantage of the recent Sandy Bridge chipset fiasco, AMD has gone and reduced the price of several Phenom processors by up to $30, depending on the chip, Fudzilla reports.

Starting with the quad-core processors, AMD shaved $10 from its Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition, 965 Black Edition, and 970 Black Edition parts. Six-core savings are a bit more significant, with the Phenom II X6 1055T dropping from $199 to $175, the 1090T from $235 to $205, and the 1100T from $265 to $239. The 1100T is AMD's flagship hexacore chip, which runs at 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo) and includes 6MB of L3 cache.
