AMD to raise prices on CPUs - AM2 pricing to be revealed on May 15th AMD will be raising their prices for AMD64 and AMD64 X2 CPUs on the 10th of April. Yes I said raise. It will only be "a few dollars", but should still offer a great price/performance according to AMD. The AMD64 FX prices will remain the same, while the Sempron will drop in price on May 15th. AMD will announce the new socket AM2 CPU pices on May 15th as well.
