A few days ago when I was checking prices for the Sempron 64 3200+ on newegg and it was at $49. Today I checked and it's at $43. Is this AMD's final price cut (for the near future) or will it be cut even further after April 9th? I'm interested in ordering ASAP but if the price will go down further, I will wait.

sempron should be set between 37-49$ in 9 april

Amd 9 april price
For the 3200+ sempron it should be about 38-44$ after 9 april

So 43$ is already good price :wink:

For whatever reason, many of the "April 9" AMD price cuts are already in effect. IMHO there is zero reason to even consider a Sempron with this available right now:

Indeed. Even an A64 single core will easily outperform a higher rated Sempron.

The X2 3600+ is a beautiful thing.

The main targets of the (already started) price drops are the disappearing Socket 754 and 90nm AM2 CPUs. But, really, what do you do with a $43 Sempron 3200+ when you have a S939 Athlon64 3200+ for the same price?!

Yeah, buying a Sempron is really pointless considering many A64's and X2's are only $25 more than a Sempron. Do have to agree that for $70, the 3600+ is a steal!
