AMD Phenom Box Art Revealed

The AMD Phenom information has been coming in at a steady pace over the past few weeks. Global Tech News was able to bring your retail pricing for three of AMD’s upcoming Phenom SKUs earlier this month.

AMD’s 2.2GHz Phenom X4 9500 will retail for $280, the 2.3GHz Phenom X4 9600 is priced at $320 and the 2.4GHz Phenom X4 9700 will come in slightly higher at $330. When the processors arrive, they’ll be wearing new duds.

Today, AMD Zone has an image of the official retail box for the Phenom processors. Although it’s unlikely that many enthusiasts care what their processors boxes look like when they arrive from online retailers, it’s a nice departure from AMD’s current design.

According to AMDZone’s Matthew Cameron, AMD showed him three prototype boxes in early June — but he declined to note whether the final design shown on the right was one of the three candidates or a new design altogether.

Regardless, Phenom in on the way and will do battle with Intel’s newly invigorated Penryn family of processors. AMD is expected to officially launch the processors on November 19.
