More about anyone 3600 price this
  1. To be fair, the E4300's pricing ain't so hot right now either...
    Oh, and the answer is no :lol:

    It's a little self-defeating, pricing like that....but it looks like they've torn a page out of Intel's playbook.(i.e. E4300/E6300 pricing). :x

    What could you get last year for that price with the same capabilities?

    Methinks thou doth protest too much.

    That's MSRP

    Newegg prices are:

    X2 3800+ $135
    X2 3600+ $118

    As soon as even 6000+ went up it sold out on BUY.com.

    It maybe back in stock
  5. who really cares it just means that we can get better products for a cheaper price, it doesnt matter, i wouldnt get an X2 3800+ when an e6300 is around $180ish
    but its good for Amd fans and budget PC's,
    Congrads AMD getting back into the market,, you guys really needed it :)

    Newegg and ewiz have them for ~$115
    But in the meantime, somebody rip these X2 3800+s off for less than $95 !!!

    I don't work for AMD and there is no contest. As a citizen of a free market you are entitled to by what you want, as are buyers of X2 3600+.

    Well, I gues people now have their sub-100 dollar AMD dual core.

    Let the buying begin.

    Budget PCs aren't faster than 965EE. Every X2 is faster at some things. The 4200+ puts it out of reach. That means that you can build a high end SLI machine with X2, probably not 3600+ but........

    I can see plenty of "unknowing" PC buyers wanting to save the $62, maybe even some knowing ones who realize you can game with that at 1024 or greater, depending on the GPU and game settings.
  10. Well perhaps the overclockability of the 3600+ makes it worth the same to some people? eh maybe not

    Well, right now the 3800 x2 is cheaper than the x2 3600. I can get the 3800 for 83€ (108$) and the x3600 for 106€(135$). I´ve to admit though, that the 3600 is the EE variant, because it´s cheaper than the regular one by roughly 10$. 8O
