AMD Phenom II X4 940: 13 percent price reduction
AMD reduces prices for five processors, among them is the top model Phenom II X4 940. So AMD immediately reacts to the price reductions done by Intel.
[IMGGALLERY=14 type=s imgid=959263 ]AMD also reduces prices for processors after Intel lowered the prices for some models yesterday. AMD's top model, the Phenom II X4 940, has been lowered by 13 percent and only costs 195 US-dollar now.
The price reduction also affects three Phenom X3 processors: Phenom X3 8750 (BE), 8650 and 8450. The lower end is the Athlon X2 7750 (BE) which gets cheaper as well.
AMD's official price list has not been adjusted yet but AMD confirmed the new prices from April 20.
Thus the price of the top model Phenom II X4 940 has been lowered by 30 percent since its introduction three months ago. The reason is the aggressive price policy of the two manufacturers and the introduction of the Phenom II X4 955 with 3.2 GHz which is said to follow soon.
