AMD Launches FX-4130, Reduces Desktop CPU Prices

The Bulldozer core-based 4130 arrives with a clock-speed of 3.8/3.9 GHz and slots into the desktop PC portfolio between the FX-4100 and FX-4170. To make room for the new processor, AMD dropped the price of the 4100 to $101. The 4130 sells for a tray price of $112.

AMD slashed the prices of 13 more processors, affecting the high-end FX-8100 series, the FX-6000 series, as well as the dual-core, triple-core and quad-core A-series APUs. The liquid-cooled 8-core 8150 is now priced at $251, down from $271, while the regular 8150 sells for $183, down from $204.

On the low-end, the dual-core A4-3300 APU dropped from $53 to $46. According to AMD's Gary Silcott, the new prices are in effect now and should be seen in retail today.

    yobobjmThis is nice, too bad I ALWAYS buy my stuff right before it gets discounted.


    I never check on prices after I buy something. It's bound to be unpleasant :-)

    No real point in buying a 8150 other than the possibility that the binning may be a bit better. Just buy the 8120 and OC it up to where the 50 is. I can pull at least 3.9 Ghz stable on mine with stock voltage.

    The picture at the top of the article also doesn't mention that the price of Deneb Phenom IIs dropped, as well. You can pick up a 955 BE for $81 and a a 965 for $91. Now THOSE are some great deals. :)
