AMD processor prices

Summary:AMD processor prices - a look at the prices pre and post the latest price drop.

I've had a few emails from people asking for a price comparison of AMD CPUs pre and post the latest price drop.  I've summarized the data for desktop CPUs (excluding the Sempron range) in the table below:

ProcessorPIB* price - $ - May '06)PIB* price $ - July '06
AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core
Athlon 64 X2 5000+ (AM2)696301
Athlon 64 X2 4600+ (energy efficient)601276
Athlon 64 X2 4600+ (AM2/939)558240
Athlon 64 X2 4200+ (energy efficient)417215
Athlon 64 X2 4200+ (AM2/939)365187
Athlon 64 X2 3800+ (energy efficient)323176
Athlon 64 X2 3800+ (AM2/939)303152
AMD Athlon 64 FX
Athlon 64 FX-62 (AM2)1031827
AMD Athlon 64
Athlon 64 3800+ (AM2/939)290112
Athlon 64 3500+ (AM2/939)18991
Athlon 64 3200+ (AM2/939)-81

PIB = Processor-In-A-Box

As you can see, the prices have dropped dramatically across the board, except for the FX-62 CPU.
