Why is the 3960X Selling for $30 more than a 3970X?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Thought this was weird since the 3970X came out a year after the 3960X and is slightly faster. Is there some benefit to the 3960 over the 3970 that is keeping the price higher?

Perhaps they want to make the 3970x sound like a much better value so that 3960x owners spend even more to switch haha.
