From CPU World:

As you may know, AMD yesterday launched two FX microprocessors, including company's first production CPU, operating faster than 4 GHz. New product releases are usually accompanied by price drops of older models, and it wasn't an exception this time. AMD cut prices on two FX-Series models, and reduced prices for most of Phenom IIs. They also added pricing for A-Series A6-3620 and A8-3820 Accelerated Processing units (APUs).

Overall, the prices were slashed by 2% - 15% for Phenom CPUs, and by 6% - 9% for FX chips. The parts, discounted the most in absolute terms, are FX-8120, and Phenom II X4 965, 975, and 980. They have got $20 cheaper. AMD FX-6100 had modest $10 price drop, however let's not forget that this is the second drop since processor's introduction last October. The biggest relative price cut, almost 15%, was for Phenom II X4 965.
