AMD to put chip prices up

@ 2006/01/19
AMD declined to comment on future pricing plans. However, one of AMD's customers has been in touch after our original story and said the prices of the Opterons is rising because they want to stop enthusiasts buying them, and buy the consumer level chips instead. --

The Opteron 165 939 will rise from $295 to $325, the 170 from $384 to $394, the 175 from $490 to $504. But the Opteron 180 939 pin CPU will drop by a fairly large percentage - from $811 to $693. On the Athlon X2 front, the 3800+ will drop from $322 to $295, the 4200+ from $400 to $355, the 4400+ from $497 to $458, and the 4800+ from $787 to $630. The FX55 will stay at $811, while the FX57 will drop from $1,011 to $811. The $1,011 chip will be the FX60. These are all dealer/distributor prices.
