AMD Slices Prices For Spring
In its most recent update to its price list, AMD cut te price of its desktop Athlon 64 chips by approximately 34 percent. The chipmaker reduced the price of its Opteron chips by as much as 34 to 35 percent.
AMD and Intel both usually schedule price cuts for the first quarter to try and pull sales out of the spring doldrums, the decline that occurs after the strong sales of the holiday season. The cuts also make room for new products to be introduced shortly after the Intel Developer Forum begins in early March.
AMD's Athlon 64 chips are now priced at $122 for the low-end Athlon 64 2800+, on up to the high-end 4000+ model, which is priced at $643. AMD's desktop Sempron chips are now priced between $68 and $114, with speeds up to the 3100+ threshold. All of AMD's processor ratings are arbitrary, based on a different clock speeds and speeds of front-side buses.
