AMD recently announced "price cuts" on their older produce.
Does this mean AMD has these piled up in a warehouse somewhere?
(I note that only 4 models of the X6 range are left)
Lists Phenom II prices at August 27, but I haven't seen any in a bricks-and-mortar store
since eons.
Even online sellers are hard to find in some countries. I see a few in North America
still offering the Thuban and Deneb are much more than these kilotray prices.

I tried for a year to get my 1090T (best cpu for my motherboard) I had 2 online suppliers trying to find one and 3 local stores, in the end I got a second hand one from ebay.
I'm in the UK, if there are any out there they're hiding very well.
Shame, because I know a load of people who would have built AMD if they could still get the thurban and a cheap price.

I was surprised to see the Phenoms listed on the price cut list, I thought they were all EOL by now, can only assume AMD still has stock left.
Phenoms seems hard to find now, especially X6's.

Newegg has $20 off the X4-965 now, $89.99 w/free shipping, not bad, those were $245 on release!

MSI 770-C45
Phenom II X2-550 @ X4 @ 3.5GHz @ Stock Vcore.
