AMD adds Athlon II X2 280 CPU, drops some prices
Feb 01, 2013: Earlier this week XBiT laboratories published two slides, showing updated AMD desktop lineup. On the lower end of that lineup AMD had FX-4130 microprocessor, and the mid- and high-performance products were Piledriver-based FX-4300, FX-6300, FX-8320 and FX-8350 CPUs with "Vishera" core. The most intriguing was that the FX-4130 had box part number FD4130WMHKBOX, which was different from previously launched FX-4130 CPU with FD4130FRGUBOX box SKU.

AMD to drop prices, launch FX-4130 CPU on August 27
Aug 24, 2012: AMD today updated A-Series, FX-Series and Phenom II pricing pages, lowering prices on full range of "Llano" APUs, and high performance K10 and "Bulldozer" CPUs. The pages shows effective date August 27, which suggests that the price drops will happen next Monday. Overall, the prices were cut by 1% - 23%.

AMD cuts prices on A-Series APUs and FX CPUs
Apr 27, 2012: A few days after announcement of Intel's Ivy Bridge micro-architecture, many news sites reported that some European retailers slashed prices of FX-8150 processors by 15% - 20%, and suggested that AMD may have dropped the prices of other processors as well. Today AMD published new pricelist, confirming price drop for the FX-8150 model. The company also cut prices of six- and quad-core FX-Series chips, and for all microprocessors from A-Series.

AMD tweaks APU prices; releases Athlon II 651 CPU
Nov 15, 2011: Yesterday AMD launched server Opteron processors, based on Bulldozer micro-architecture. This event was widely covered by all hardware news sites. It is less known that yesterday AMD also changed prices of several Accelerated Processing Units (APUs), as well as the price of FX-6100 model. In addition to that, AMD introduced new Athlon II X4 651 microprocessor.

AMD launches A-Series and the first 32nm Athlon II X4 CPUs
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.

Pre-order prices of upcoming Llano processors
Aug 08, 2011: Launched one month ago, AMD A-Series currently consists of two Accelerated Processing Units (APUs), A8-3850 and A6-3650. Both microprocessors have fixed core frequency, 2.9 GHz and 2.6 GHz respectively, and 100 Watt TDP. This quarter, AMD is going to introduce several additional A4-, A6- and A8-Series SKUs.

Llano desktop CPUs to launch on June 30
Jun 27, 2011: Fudzilla reported today that desktop Llano microprocessors will be launched on Thursday, June 30 (see correction below). Last weekend, first ASUS F1A75-M PRO, F1A75-V PRO, Gigabyte GA-A75M-UD2H and GA-A75-UD4H socket FM1 mainboards appeared in stock of smaller internet stores. The prices are starting from about $110 for ASUS F1A75-M PRO and Gigabyte GA-A75M-UD2H micro-ATX boards, and up to $125 - $130 for ASUS F1A75-V PRO and GA-A75-UD4H ATX motherboards. The desktop Llano processors are not available for sale in US yet, although two of them, A6-3650 and A8-3850, can be pre-ordered for $120+ and $142+, respectively.
