AMD drops prices of Athlon II and A-Series processors
Nov 06, 2012: Last month DigiTimes reported on upcoming price reductions of older generation of AMD APUs. According to their sources, AMD was going to reduce prices of socket FM1 processors by as much as 35%. Yesterday AMD updated their official price list, and posted new prices of A-Series microprocessors, however the cuts were not as big as expected.

AMD drops prices on full line of desktop CPUs
May 03, 2011: As you may already know, today AMD launched Phenom II X4 980 flagship model, as well as a few desktop processors from Athlon II and Phenom II families. At the same time, AMD dropped prices on existing desktop CPUs. As a matter of fact, every Athlon II and Phenom II desktop model was reduced in price on average by 11.6%.

AMD cuts prices on older desktop models
Dec 07, 2010: With the launch of three new desktop processors today, AMD also dropped prices on many older models. Majority of price cuts were insignificant, typically in the range from 3% to 10%. The price of one microprocessor, Phenom II X4 970, was increased by $5, or by about 3%.

Athlon II lineup refresh
May 11, 2010: Today AMD introduced six new Athlon II microprocessors. These include 45 Watt low power dual-, triple- and quad-core Athlon IIs, 65 Watt standard power Athlon II X2s, and 95 Watt standard power triple- and quad-core Athlon II CPUs.

Prices of upcoming Athlon II CPUs
May 07, 2010: We posted news today regarding pre-order prices for upcoming Intel Core i5-655K and Core i7-875K microprocessors. But it gets even better. We just discovered that forthcoming Athlon II processors are also available for pre-order on Provantage website.

Upcoming AMD desktop processors
Mar 24, 2010: This quarter AMD released only three Athlon II-branded models, dual-core 255 (3.1 GHz), triple-core 440 (3 GHz) and quad-core 635 (2.9 GHz), and two new quad-core Phenom II models - 555 and 910e. Second quarter should be much more interesting as we will see six-core Phenoms (posted earlier this month), and many new Athlon II models.
