AMD Phenom II and Athlon II Lineup Refresh

So there’s been a lot going on for NVIDIA with the release of several mid-range and entry level graphics cards lately, but look’s like AMD is now making a move in the CPU (not a typo) department instead. The six separate processors AMD recently released targets high-end enthusiasts to mainstream users alike, and here’s the full list of what’s being offered and their MSRP’s (in USD):

  • 3.0GHz (Turbo @ 3.5GHz) Phenom II X6 1075T – $245
  • 3.5GHz Phenom II X4 970 Black Edition – $185
  • 3.3GHz Phenom II X2 560 Black Edition – $105
  • 3.1GHz Athlon II X4 645 – $122
  • 3.2GHz Athlon II X3 450 – $87
  • 3.3GHz – Athlon II X2 265 – $76

Despite AMD’s recent price cuts, the new chips are actually a bit more expensive than the previous lineup, however they are being introduced at similar price points. Bear in mind that all the newly launched CPUs are based on existing processor cores, and the only difference are model numbers and frequencies. All this is great and all AMD, now how about more on those new Radeon cards?
