AMD has reduced the price of its quad-core Phenom II X4 940 and 920 CPUs from US$275 and US$235 to US$225 and US$195 in thousand-unit tray quantities, respectively.

In addition to reducing the price of current CPUs, AMD also plans to launch the Phenom II X4 950 in the second quarter with a core frequency of 3.1GHz.
The only thing that keeps me wishing on a wishing star.

Hi
 
I saw the price drop on Newegg a few days ago.  It is both not surprising and good.  Not surprising because the x2 940s are pretty weak compared to the i7s and even middle line q4s so AMD has to compete in the price vs. performance arena rather than pure performance.  It is good because it is the first pressure to drive the i7s down in price and that is good for all.

very good competition indeed with the AMD 4800 series competing with the expensive nvidia cards they had no choice but to lower the prices on those bad boys..
