AMD Cuts APU & FX CPU Prices; Up-to 18.9% Cheaper

In addition to launching the new FX-6350 and FX-4350 Piledriver based CPUs, AMD has slashed the prices of a number of its A-Series APUs and FX-Series CPUs. The smallest price cut sits at 9.5 percent and the biggest at 18.9 percent. The much older Phenom II X4 965 even got a price reduction of 11 percent.

    nice. AMD is king in the budget to midrange arena imo.
    Also why would anyone buy the fx-4300 over the fx-6300 if it only costs $4 more?

    Because Intel has no incentive thanks to high demand.

    Wow, a 965 BE at $81 is a really good deal. The 980 performed really well in Tom's most recent budget gaming CPU roundup, beating every AMD processor except for the 8 core FX's. The 965 BE can easily be overclocked into a 980.
    Otherwise, looks like they're lowering the prices to be more comptetive with their FX processors and to clear old APU stocks before Richland releases.
