Word has it from The DailyTech that if you're lucky you might still score yourself a 2x1MB based Athlon64 X2 if you shop around, and now with lower pricing to boot.. but you'd better be quick to act as these have been discontinued!
DailyTech previously reported AMD price cuts that occurred on July 24th, 2006. The announced price cuts affected most of AMD's product lineup except soon-to-be discontinued products such as the Athlon 64 X2 4800+, 4400+ and 4000+ for Socket AM2 and Socket 939. Although Athlon 64 X2 4800+, 4400+ and 4000+ are end-of-life products distributors still have them in stock. Since AMD never announced price cuts for Athlon 64 X2 4800+, 4400+ and 4000+ products, retailers were stuck with the original pricing.
