Prices of AMD FX-, E2- and A-Series desktop CPUs leaked

DigiTimes revealed today prices for upcoming AMD A-, E2- and FX-Series microprocessors. According to their sources, the processors will be priced from $70 for dual-core E2-3250 CPU, and up to $320 for flagship octo-core FX-8130P.

AMD high-performance FX-Series will consist from three tiers - FX-8000 with 8 CPU cores is positioned against Intel Core i7s, whereas hexa-core FX-6000 and quad-core FX-4000 will compete with Core i5 chips. All FX processors will be based on upcoming Bulldozer core, and they will work in socket AM3+ motherboards. Prices on these microprocessors will range from $220 to $320.

AMD A-Series APUs fall into mid-class market segment. These parts are built on Llano core, which integrates shrinked down K10 core with on-chip Radeon HD 6000-class graphics. These processors will replace current Athlon II families and entry-level Phenom IIs. The A-Series will compete with Intel Pentium and Core i3 counterparts, and with the least expensive Core i5 offerings. The cheapest from this series is going to be dual-core A4-3350P, priced at $80. The most expensive Llano APU will be quad-core A8-3550P at $170. All A-Series SKUs will require motherboards with not yet released socket FM1.

AMD E2-3250 is the only known model from E2- budget series, planned to be released in the third quarter. This part has weaker features than A-Series APUs, and its $70 sticker price reflects that. The E2-3250 is positioned against Pentium G620, that was released today.
