AMD slashes desktop CPU prices

Written by Peter Scott



9.9 to 18.9 percent

AMD is slashing the prices of multiple A-series APUs, three FX chips and a lone Phenom quad-core. 

Prices of six A-series chips have been slashed by up to 18.9 percent, with three old 3000-series chips dipping by 12.2 to 18.9 percent. However, the current 5000-series is also down. The A8-5600K and A8-5500 saw their prices slashed from $101 to $91, while the A6-5400K went from $67 to just $57.

The FX-4300 now sells for $108, down from $122, while the FX-6300 goes for $112, down from $132. The FX-8320 is the priciest chip to get a haircut. AMD slashed its price from $169 to $153.

AMD also removed numerous Phenom quad- and six-cores from its price list. Only one is still on offer, the Phenom II X4 965 BE, which had its price slashed from $91 to $81. Once it EOLs, it will be the end of the Phenom brand, unless AMD chooses to resurrect it.

The cuts come as no surprise, as AMD is scheduled to introduce next generation Richland APUs in a matter of weeks.
