Boxes of tricks
As you may well have read already - most probably on HEXUS - AMD launched a bunch of new CPUs today.
As ever AMD pays very close attention to Intel's pricing in order to be able to claim superior bang-per-buck versus similarly priced Intel chips. The days of AMD competing with Intel at the very top of the market are long gone, so it's all about bang-per-buck these days.
AMD publishes an online price list, but in the past we've found there has been significant delay between the launch of new CPUs and the price list being updated.
Luckily we've developed some good contacts in the AMD channel and can provide you with the table below showing the channel price of the processor-in-a-box versions - all socket AM3.
