    Default AMD cuts prices of desktop CPUs

    Earlier this week AMD announced new processors, expanding the line of high-end FX CPUs with quad-core FX-4350 and six-core FX-6350. It's not uncommon for AMD to lower prices when launching new products, and this time it was not an exception. Based on the latest official AMD price list, the company cut prices of ten A-Series and FX-Series chips by as much as 19%.

    AMD A6-3600, A8-3800 and A8-3820 socket FM1 APUs had their prices slashed by 12% - 19%. All three parts are not available in retail, as a result not many people would probably care about their price reductions.

    AMD A6-5400K, A8-5500, and A8-5600K socket FM2 processors are now $10 less expensive. In relative terms, it corresponds to 10% - 15% lower cost depending on SKU. The prices of FX-4300, FX-6300, and FX-8320 CPUs also dropped by 10% - 15%.

    A handful of old Phenom II X4 and X6 microprocessors were removed from the price list, including Phenom II X4 840, 905e, 910e, Phenom II X6 1055T, 1075T, 1090T BE and 1100T BE. The only Phenom II part, that had its price revised, was X4 965 Black Edition. This CPU now costs $81, down from $91.

    Here is a full list of new and old prices:

    CPU model Old price New price Difference
    A6-3600 $95 $77 18.9%
    A8-3800 $105 $91 13.3%
    A8-3820 $115 $101 12.2%
    A6-5400K $67 $57 14.9%
    A8-5500 $101 $91 9.9%
    A8-5600K $101 $91 9.9%
    FX-4300 $122 $108 11.5%
    FX-6300 $132 $112 15.2%
    FX-8320 $169 $153 9.5%
    Phenom II X4 965 BE $91 $81 11%
