AMD's complete retail pricing for desktop processors through October 23, 2006
This is a public service announcement, there will be no price cuts on October 23rd, 2006

DailyTech previously reported AMD was planning a major CPU price cut a couple days after Intel ships Core 2 Duo Conroe processors. Those expecting AMD to announce another price cut in time for the holiday season will be disappointed. DailyTech has received an updated price list for October 23rd, 2006 that shows AMD has no plans to reduce prices on its Athlon 64 and Sempron desktop product lineups anytime soon. Pricing on Athlon 64, Athlon 64 FX, Athlon 64 X2, Athlon 64 X2 EE and Sempron will stay the same well into 2007 which may disappoint users expecting a sub-$100 dual-core AMD offering in time for the holidays to compete with Intel's $95 Pentium D 805.

The upcoming July 24th, 2006 price cut is the only planned price cut for quite a while. There’s no word on other upcoming price cuts yet, though it wouldn’t be surprising to see AMD cut prices when Brisbane production ramps up. DailyTech has previously reported on AMD’s upcoming Socket AM2 motherboard forward compatibility with Socket AM3 CPUs, upcoming AMD K8L architecture, AMD’s June 2006 product roadmap and upcoming 65nm improvements too. AMD has also been aggressively discontinuing Socket 939 and 754 products including dual-core Athlon 64 X2 4200+ and 4600+ models.

Price cuts

Now those are some pretty seriou price cuts. However, it says the fx-62 is $999 as of 5/15/06. It never was priced at that number ($1031 is all I've seen). So I hope this is a legitimate price list.

Go processor price wars!!!

And for the same price you can get a E6600 Conroe. That is faster than the FX series AMD... However, the lower end looks good. Specially the 3800+ X2 (overclocks reasonably well AND cheap). Without SLI or Crossfire GPUs fast enough for gaming.

999 is what the store pays for them in volume. Your not going to get that price. Any thing close is pretty good.
I think the price cuts are pretty good. I dont see any reason to drop price to P-D prices. AMD X2 is alot better then all P-D. So they should be price higher. Right between P-D and the new intel chisp is good spot for them.
Right not the low Voltage chips are looking nice for the new HTPC I need to build. Also the X2 for $150 is looking very nice. They OC easy and I doubt I need that much CPU ppwer for bit (video card is needed so much more for the games I play). THier are still reason to buy AMD. But intel is now looking very sweet if you want to power.

The price in that table will be for bulk purchasing. Retailers are free to charge their own amounts to cover profit margin and distribution costs.

On another note all those who are currently looking at 3800+ systems would do well to wait a few weeks for these reductions.

It does seem that Intel has really forced AMD onto the back foot here in terms of pricing, I just hope it doesn't affect their development budget too much.

Could you please make it more clear that these are prices that only distributers have access to, so a processor a person who reads this article, wants to buy will have a price premium over the price specified.

At this point I find it a bit misleading as the price in this diagram don't like up to the prices provided on AMD website.

Historically, these prices will be extremely close to what we will pay for. It's not like the old days where there was a huge disperity between the bulk prices and the consumer prices. I've seen recently where the prices were dead on the same. Don't worry, the drops will be significant.

If you check places like Newegg, ZipZoomfly, and MonarchPC they don't match what the prices in the article list that they are supposed to be now. The price premium is something that we aresure to be concerned about.

Look the x2 3800+ is all 297US there, while AMD claims 303US and this chart says they are supposed to be 277US. There is some difference to be concerned about.

RE: Price cuts
By bob661 on 7/17/2006 11:59:49 PM , Rating: 2
Oops $682 for the 5000. Looks like Monarch charges $33 over. Let's check out the other CPU's there. 4600 is $547 which is $522 on the sheet, $25 over. 4200 is $357, $339 on the sheet...$18 over. Looks like the more expensive the CPU, the more money is charged for the priviledge. My guess is there is less demand for the pricier CPU's so the add more markup on those. I'm interested in a 5000 so my guess will be that I woul pay somewhere around $315 for it come July 24th. I'm not really buying one until the 65nm's come out though so maybe I will end up paying under $300 for it.

No gouging it's just the way it is with Intel boards. They are just more expensive than other boards. Best to wait till NV or ATI comes out.

Well, under 100US motherboards bearing the Intel brand name are rare unless you consider the 865 Series.

The 945 Series are likely the most likely ones to fall below 100US. 965 Series will likely vary from 120US to 200US.

While if your looking for mtoherboards over 200US those are typcially the 975X.

IF you want a cheap board for Intel, a ATI chipset would be the way to go, since those typically have had a tendency fto be cheap, but a just release performance series not likely.

Consider E6300 - the "underdog"
By RussianSensation on 7/17/2006 9:00:04 PM , Rating: 2
I have a feeling a lot of people are going to want to grab E6600 because it has full 4mb cache and seems like a "bargain" chip that at $316 outperforms FX-62.

However, the lower end models, even E6300 should be formidable as well: http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/cpu/display/core2...

Even if the $185 model is priced at 30% above MSRP, that's still $240 that buys you $999 X6800 performance (for us enthusiasts that overclock). The problem with AMD is that it'll get stuck at 3.0-3.2ghz and overclocking won't help catch up with performance.

But, the way I see it, the real winners here are NV and ATI. If I am faced with upgrading to A64 and way overpriced Conroes, I'd rather put $100 towards G80 or R600 where it really makes a difference.

the 6300 won't be something i'd recommend, because it is locked at a seriously low multiplier. to overclock even to 3ghz would require quite a decent motherboard, maybe overvolting the chipset. have a look at http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/cpu/display/core2...

but the newly announced lower bin with 800mhz fsb might be a dream come true. even cheaper price, higher multiplier, hopefully will reach in the range of 3.5-4ghz without needing too expensive motherboards. the problems of this chip are some missing features like virtualisation etc.

we'll need to wait for the actual chips before counting on these high overclocks though. handpicked engineering samples sent to reviewers might turn out to be a nasty trick, seeing how some less-known sites had trouble with even the X6800 above 3.2ghz on air, 3.5 with phasechange and significant overvolting.

These prices are ridiculous. This is a beautiful time to upgrade. While the bump is minor, I might just buy a 4600+ and give my 4200+ to my bro. Still, if I were in the market for a complete overhaul, I might just jump to C2D. Here's what the prices should look like come 7/24

$999 - E6800
$799 - FX-62
$530 - E6700
$324 - 5000+ EE
$316 - E6600
$282 - 5000+
$257 - 4600+ EE
$231 - 3800+ EE (35W)
$224 - 4600+, E6400
$200 - 4200+ EE
$183 - E6300
$175 - 4200+
$164 - 3800+ EE
$149 - 3800+

Obviously mobo prices are going to play a huge part in what processor you pick up. I think though, with the margin in prices, the C2D E6600 is still the sweet spot for price/performance. I still can't believe they slashed prices this hard. Goddamn, it's good time to upgrade! :D

I don't want to be captain obvious, but worth echoing what almost every review has said so far about Core 2 Duos.. Looking at the production numbers, and considering the Dells of the world will inhale most of what does get made as fast as Intel can make them, the suggested prices aren't likely to be anywhere even near what MSRP has been reported.

On the other hand, while it's a sure bet that until well in to 07 they wont come close to MSRP (where as AMDs likely will be), someone else with more experience watching how the CPU and possibly GPU market acts with a supply shortage could suggest a mark-up. And surely there will be too as Intel fans buy their favorite chip, price/performance ratio be damned.

Yeah.. I'd swallow pride and buy AMD 'till Intel really ramps in 07. Not as fast, but like [H] shot itself in the foot to prove, unless you're gaming at 800x600, it doesn't matter at all in gaming, and price/performance ratios should be enough to seal the deal with application performance.

Come to think of it, Intel's really dropped the ball here. If they could dump enough supply of Conroe on the market right now, this month, to keep the price at or below MSRP, AMD would be in lost in an ocean of red ink without a life raft.

Just to prove I'm not a strict AMD fan and running my mouth about Intel, I do plan to buy Conroe next time around =) Assuming in Feb or March of 07, AMD hasn't got something much better.. I'm not holding my breath, though. Sorry AMD ;)

But right now, and until 07, yeah. 20% markup wouldn't shock me. 40% would, 30% would raise an eyebrow and illict a shaking of the head at fanboys from buying the price up.


RE: Unbelievable
By gramboh on 7/17/2006 9:25:17 PM , Rating: 1
Not sure where all this speculation comes from.

I think it originated because Intel has stated that ~25% of their production will be for Core 2 chips for the rest of 2006 while 75% is still on Netburst and others. People assume 25% is tiny and will cause massive market shortages.

A few problems with this prediction is that 25% of Intel's production is greater than 100% of AMD's. Also, most of the sales of Dell machines are budget systems well under $1,000. Given the cost of mainboards/CPUs for Core 2 and DDR2, it is likely that the majority of Dell etc. customers will buy Netburst based systems as they don't care about top end performance on a $500 machine or $1,000 laptop.

Realizing that, the production profile makes sense. Remember the enthusiast market is tiny compared to the masses. Intel is huge and knows the market well, they would gain nothing by creating a supply shortage and end up pissing off end users.

My prediction is there may be small price increases in the first 2-4 weeks of Core 2 (as with most launches with demand), I'd be surprised to see more than 20%. After that prices will be within range of MSRP.

Depends on how the 5000 series Xeons perform. They're beasts in 1P-2P situations, but the FSB is probably going to be a huge bottleneck in 4P and greater situations. AMD might not have to drop prices too much, if at all, if that turns out to be the case.

Am I the only one who thinks it would be completely retarded for AMD to announce a price reduction only a couple months before? Doing that would absolutely kill their sales numbers between now and then because everyone would wait for the price drop. Seems like they said price drops won't be coming anytime soon so that people who want an X2 now won't wait to get one. However, that doesn't mean AMD CAN'T drop prices right after Conroe starts shipping and say they did it because of market conditions.

The AMD website prices are current prices for PIB... the MSRP. The pricing we publish is always the distributor pricing: the pricing that retailers are not allowed to go below unless there is some sort of agreement with AMD.

The MSRP on AMD's site is a nice guideline, but it's not typically the street price.

Regardless of which manufacturer you prefer, these newer prices reflect why its imporant we have two companies going at each other unlike the late 80s and early 90s. The semprons are particuarly interesting here as they offer 64-bit computing on a shoestring budget easily with the new prices.

Yeah, and those small cache semprons will probably overclock very well. The 256kb of L2 won't hurt much if you're running at 3.0ghz. It should be a potentially very fast CPU for $50 or so.

That's a price massacre!

AMD's margins will be reduced of course, but probably not to anything near loss-making levels. The $150 3800+ looks like a great little purchase, coupled with a good value AM2 motherboard - it'll overclock nicely too of course. And it will be available...

However the nearly similarly priced Conroe will also overclock nicely and it will outperform the above. It'll cost more though - maybe that money is better spent on better cooling for the 3800+ ... or on a book "Arguing Online Effectively for fanboys" ;)

I'll definitely be sticking to AMD and bagging an Athlon64 X2-5000+ Socket AM2!

for putting out such a great processor at an awesome price range this go around. Without that happening price competition wouldn't be nearly this fierce and without a doubt I'm going to be the winning one in this scenario. No matter whether I go Intel or AMD I'm going to get one helluva deal!

How will these price drops work in retailer stores? Will drops happen immediately? Does that mean on the day? The announced AMD price drop will happen on Monday, July 24th. When will retailers such as Fry's and CompUSA drop their prices to match the dropped prices?

Pricing looks good. I still want to go with Conroe but will probably be awhile before people start getting them.

We probably won't see the price drops till around mid August due to so many processors out there already.




Oh well

They can't drop prices too far, won't be profitable and then they will be in trouble. We'll see where the cards land.
