Aug 17, 2011
: Earlier this month, we reported on pre-order prices of several
forthcoming AMD A-series and Athlon II X4 microprocessors, built on
new 32nm Llano core. Based on these prices, we projected that the
A6-3600 and A8-3800 APUs will cost the same as A6-3650 and A8-3850
models, or very close to them. We also estimated $90 - $100 price for
triple-core A6-3500, and $80 - $90 range for the Athlon II X4 631. AMD
today added these processors to official pricelist, and the prices are
slightly better than we estimated.
