AMD Phenom 9600 available now

On November 19, 2007, AMD's Phenom, a quad-core processor for home use, was launched. The product launch was completed with the two Phenom models 9500 (2.2 GHz) and 9600 (2.3 GHz) - an originally planned 2.4 GHz model was postponed to early 2008 at short notice due to errors that became known.

According to the Geizhals price comparison service, the sales price is currently starting at just under 235 euros . This is a whopping 45 euros above the official recommended price from AMD , which is 190 euros. A similar picture emerges with the Phenom 9500, which has been available for a long time. This should come on the market for 169 euros, but can only be gotten from 206 euros . Here, too, there is a significant deviation from the AMD specification at 37 euros.

Whether this retailer's pricing policy will last or just a price spike for a completely new product caused by supply and demand will be the next Show weeks.
