I’ve been on the look-out for the new AMD Phenom II since it was first announced last January. Most of the local stores I drop by don’t have it on stock yet. I even asked their local PR if they’re distributing units around.
Over the week-end I saw them listed over at Rising Sun Computers:
AMD Phenom II X4 920 2.8GHz Quad Core
Price: Php 10,100
AMD Phenom II X4 940 3.0GHz Quad Core
Price: Php 11,600
They’re still on an order basis though. This line will be AMD’s direct competitor for Intel’s Core i7 (they even had the SKUs similar to each other) but the price points are much lower. Would be interesting how the Phenom 2 will stack against Intel’s.
