Athlon 64 X2 3600+ coming soon below $150?


— 10:56 AM on August 8, 2006

A leaked AMD price list obtained by HKEPC shows pricing for a new Athlon 64 X2 3600+ processor. Rumors surrounding this chip have made the rounds since late June. While it is currently an OEM-only processor, the Athlon 64 X2 3600+ will reportedly see a retail launch on Socket AM2 "in the short coming future." The leaked price list is in Hong Kong dollars, and it shows a price equivalent to $149 for the chip. However, the Athlon 64 X2 3800+ is listed for the equivalent of $160 (while its U.S. price is $153,) suggesting Hong Kong prices are a little higher than their U.S. counterparts. If the Athlon 64 X2 3600+ is priced accordingly, it could dip further below $150 in the U.S to better compete with Intel's Pentium D 915, which has a 1000-unit price of just $133.
