Intel/AMD CPUs, DDR2 RAM prices drop
Was informed last week that there was an across the board price drop of all Intel and AMD CPUs. Just over a month ago, I bought a new desktop rig (AMD Athlon X2 3800 Dual Core) and comparing the prices I got then with the ones listed at PCX now, there’s a huge drop indeed.
AMD Athlon X2 3800 Dual Core – Php4,470 (about 9.8k at Villman)
AMD Athlon 64 3500+ AM2 – Php3,640
AMD Sempron 3200+ AM2 – Php2,130
Intel E6600 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo 4MB L2 – Php12,170 (still close to 19k at Villman)
Intel E4300 1.8GHz Core 2 Duo 2MB L2 – Php6,460
Intel 935 3.2GHz Dual Core 4MB L2 – Php4,780
Intel Celeron D 347 Single Core 3.06GHz – Php2,290
Prices of DDR2 RAM has also dropped by almost half.
Kingston/Corsair 1GB 667 DDR2 – Php2,440
Kingston/Corsair 1GB 533 DDR2 – Php2,390
SODIMM laptop memory also dropped to Php2,340 for 1GB.
However, RAM prices for the DDR almost remained the same with the 1GB PC400 DDR still at Php4,370. I am still checking some recent news on what caused these price drops.
