Phenom 9950 price jumps $20 in a week

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Used to be $169.99, and now it's $189.99. What's the deal? Do people not know that Denebs are coming very, very soon?

My guess is that Deneb has given AMD a lot of publicity, so people are jumping back on the AMD ship again. The problem is, people are impatient, and they're rationalizing to themselves that since the 9950 is cheaper, it's worth getting rather than waiting another month or less.

That's my only theory...otherwise, doesn't seem to make sense. $169.99 was actually a good price. Now, you might as well get the noticeably cheaper 9850 or get the slightly more expensive 920 when it comes out. I could've sworn that the current Phenoms were going to drop in price as the Phenom IIs approached, but man, I was wrong.

Was it $189.99 before Black Friday? I thought it was lower than that.

Kind of weird how they let the price gradually creep back up instead of jacking up the price on Saturday two weeks ago.

Well, if it was less than 189.99 before black friday, than either demand for the chip has gone up, or supply has shot down.

Well, that was my point, though I didn't say it outright. It seems people are buying these things a lot these days, despite the coming Deneb. My theory was a newfound interest in AMD...

Anyway, still a good CPU. Just found it curious.

It was $199 last night.


There is now no compelling reason to buy this instead of a Q6600.

Yea, it's still $199. Starting to become a rip-off when the Deneb 920 is about $30 more. People must still be buying them...
