Post Phenom Price Drop

Phenom Price Drops in Deutschland


AMD's Phenom Quad Cores are going to be receiving major price cuts soon across all models. In Germany, the price of the 9500 has been slashed to 143 Euros.
Quote:
"And what’s more, to enable you to experience the true performance of the AMD Phenom 9000 series processors, we are offering our loyal customers an early Christmas gift – the Phenom 9500, 9600 and 9600 Black Edition with clock multiplier, at a traditionally dual-core price!

That’s right! With effect from Monday 17th December you will be able to harness Quad-Core Power at a traditionally Dual-Core price!"

FYI I knew about this before I made my order. I still wouldn't touch the Phenoms. Price cut isn't that drastic. 143 Euros is equivalent to a little over $200 for the Agena 9500. I believe the B3 relaunch is already in effect though, so that's one thing to be positive about.

Still not worth it until they fix the error and they can actually be overclocked to a decent speed.
