The ageing Phenom II series got an even bigger discount. The Phenom II X4 saw its price reduced from $135 to $115, while prices of other quads were cut anywhere between 1.9 percent and 11.4 percent.
Two Thuban six cores also had their prices slashed and the 1075T and 1055T are now priced at $165 and $155 respectively.
