Take a look here.
It’s an AMD Athlon 64 X2 3600+ Brisbane (65nm) 1.9GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM2 OEM processor.
For comparison’s sake, the cheapest Intel 65nm dual-core, a Pentium D 915, is going for about $87.
What’s scary is that the price will probably end up being a few dollars lower once other retailers get supplied with these. shortly.
What’s scarier is that this price may not look terribly hot a few months from now.
I think we may start seeing “Buy a motherboard, get a CPU free” deals (OK, the mobo will be overpriced) popping up before this is over.
