Pricing on the FX-6200 and FX-4170 hasn't officially been disclosed, but as an indication the FX-6200 is up for pre-order at 152.70 Euro and the FX-4170 is shifting for 120.60 Euro at the time of writing.

As for the aforementioned price cuts on the FX-8120 and FX-6100 chips, they've taken a small dive from $205 to $185 and $155 to $145, respectively.
