    I read somewhere just yesterday (the financial times was it?? not sure) that AMD has further slashed some prices and the 5000+ plus is out.... causing the X2 range to fall....

    I am not sure of the source as the article was in a club library where I'm a member and I just didn't pay attention to the mag...but the news shocked me sh1tless..acc'd to it the X2 4800+ has fallen by nearly 300 US$$.... Is this true?? please correct me if i'm wrong...and admins can delete the thread if this proves so...
    If it is true however..then wouldn't the entire X2 range and the venice's also xperience a similar drop??

    Ok here's the article it was in the financial express (chennai) Monday Jan 30th..now the mistake for 300$ was mine because I thought the 4800+ was still around 1000 us $$..it is infact 803 us $ as quoted here...and the latest price announced is 643 US $. so its a 150$ fall, unfortunately this is the largest price drop and other have fallen by less but details aren't given..

    Now if anyone has access to this paper check and confirm else I will scan the part and send it across.

    You cannot differentiate between a mag from a newspaper ????:huh:

    I sincerely hope henceforth you can differentiate between Techtree (TT) and TechEnclave (TE);)

    Vandal is right.

    The X2 4800+ does cost $643 now according to AMD too.
