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.
