New AMD processors start showing up at Newegg
You know those desktop processors AMD announced on Monday? They're already available; at least, some of them are. Newegg currently stocks all of the newly introduced Phenom IIs and the quickest two Athlon II processors, but prices are a little bit higher than what AMD quoted—even though the chipmaker said it was citing "retail pricing estimates" and not bulk figures.
|Phenom II X6 1075T
|Phenom II X4 970 BE
|Phenom II X2 560 BE
|Athlon II X4 645
|Athlon II X3 450
|Athlon II X2 265
The Athlon II X2 265 hasn't arrived yet. Neither have the low-power quad-, triple-, and dual-core Athlon IIs AMD unleashed alongside the regular-wattage parts. I don't imagine too many people have their credit cards out waiting for those, though.
Interestingly, the arrival of the Phenom II X6 1075T seems to have coincided with a price cut at Newegg for the quicker Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition. AMD's fastest desktop processor now sells for $274.99 with free shipping, while Google's cache still shows the old $295.99 price tag.
