[TR] AMD updates Phenom II price list - Page 11

post #101 of 110
waiting for the 1090T to be $180 USD final after tax and ship (there is no tax or shipping for a California resident buying a processor from Amazon). Amazon has it for $200 final, but hands out $30 Amazon GCs when there's a sale. $180 or lower (from Amazon or Fry's, Newegg pricing is horrible for processors) and I pull the trigger. I'm in no hurry.

The X6 1100t is very competitive in both it's old and newer price brackets. However that being sad we're going to have to hold off for the Bulldozer vs Ivy Bridge competition that is sure to break out. It may not even square off in that order as we may see Bulldozer face Sandy Bridge.

Some people rave that AMD has the best value for the price, however, I'd like to say that, this is NOT always true, though they will "try" to be competitive, they often fail!

AMD's dual cores aren't even in the same league as Intel's dual cores, it's not even remotely close... (Price vs Performance on the low end, Intel MURDERS AMD.)

Granted AMD was trying to be competitive bring out the Phenom II X6s to compare up the i5-750 or i7-950s, alas, they didn't really win here... The i5 and i7s are irrefutably awesome!

Granted on the low end of AMD's quad cores they have the Phenom II X4 which is nicely priced for a quad core that can deliver well for any Overclocking Enthusiast, for the price, then again Intel has the Core 2 Quad.. This is actually one place AMD is doing well at, and seeing them drop prices a little shows that they are starting to either make good decisions or they are feeling the financial competition burden Intel placed on them. Can they really afford to take the CPUs down more in price? (I'm thinking much more so!)

So where when and how will AMD win the fight against Intel? Will AMD's Bulldozer 8 Core Zambezi CPU beat intel? (We will see!) I'm not seeing much hope if AMD can't get significantly more agressive with pricing, especially in the Dual Core market!

Unfortunately if their 8 core CPU is too expensive (over $300), then they may be hard pressed to garnish a larger chunk of the market shares of consumers buying CPUs! Then again, they are have been more focused on the Server Platform over the Client/consumer platform, unfortunately...

Other than paying for the salary of Engineers to design the CPU, how much more can it cost to produce a quad core CPU over a dual core CPU?
It just doesn't make financial sense that an 8 Core CPU would cost 4 times more than a dual core CPU to produce, or is it just me?

Just my 2cents..

=====================
I completely agree with Maggot, this was a trim, not a slash in prices...

A slash would have been like $40 or more!

Depends what you consider "low end".
Intel doesn't have anything more powerful than the E6000 series under $100, whereas AMD has Athlon II quads/Phenom II duals

This.

Not to mention you can unlock them, so their value extends even beyond the lower price.

Look at their Athlon II lineup. Also look at Sempron. A Sempron has been on sale at Fry's several times at $20 dollars...

I got an Athlon II quadcore (630) for $40 dollars after tax... try to find anything even close to that. Good luck.

I'm not even gonna talk about unlocking cores.

Just makes me feel all the more special knowing I bought my i5 750 14 months ago brand new at $149.99

Now THAT was a deal.
