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.

Model AMD price Newegg price
Phenom II X6 1075T $239 $245.99
Phenom II X4 970 BE $179 $188.99
Phenom II X2 560 BE $99 $105.99
Athlon II X4 645 $119 $125.99
Athlon II X3 450 $84 $89.99
Athlon II X2 265 $74 N/A

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.
