Looks like its here..The Good old price cuts :

UPDATED This article below was originally published on the 30th but we withdrew it waiting for further information.
Our channel sources now tell us AMD is giving "instant rebates" on a number of its processors, and it's hoping to ramp up supply of X2s by the middle of December. The rebates, which apply mostingly to 939 processors, amount to price cuts of between $10 and $20.

But there are also rebates on X2 processors and X2 processors plus EE. We believe AMD left its "updated" 30 November price list to avoid having to concede it is in a bitter price war with Intel. The original story is below.

THE PRICE WAR between Intel and AMD has made the smaller chip company react by slashing costs several weeks before it intended to.

The firm announced price cuts today in what must be a reaction to Intel's continued ability to set the pace on product introductions and on pricing.

The move reflects price wars of yesteryear but according to the most recent Intel roadmaps we've seen, it intends to keep prices steady as it continues to ramp its 65 nanometre process.

The new pricing details have just appeared on AMD's web site, here.

More worryingly for AMD, sources close to its channel partners tell the INQ there are still problems on allocation which aren't making them happy bunnies. Yesterday AMD's share price fell by over 50 cents on rumours of the move

So it begins...bout time...know how hard it is to find a X2 at a shop?!
Yes X2 CPU's are alot harder to find..I watched them slowly dissapaear as it happened during my upgrade period.
I'm quite sure they are... newegg is all out
Haha, the X2, when they came out everyone was getting them, now there nowhere.
When something as hot as the X2's are not in production they sell the last of the stock quite fast.

The 939's are going to stop being produced this Xmas, then the 754's in July (only big customer's can order them now) , and then AM2 will be the only "official" amd socket!

It seems that (and not just from theInq) X2'S are selling out due to low supply rather than high demand. The PS3 sold out too...

Off Topic...The PS3 is really not that great.

Does this mean no more 939 will be found after Xmas?

Ebay? Some suppliers will still have them lying around. Just because they aren't being produced doesn't mean they aren't around.
