AMD also wants to lower prices

Although nothing has been officially confirmed, there are increasing rumors that AMD has also turned the price screw today. However, the price reductions only affect the new Athlon XP processors. However, not much will change in the prices of the old Athlon Thunderbird series.

AMD is consistently working towards gradually taking these older models out of the market. This is not surprising, since there is actually no reason to forego the numerous improvements of the Athlon XP. The following prices should apply today for the purchase of 1000 pieces.

Price for the purchase of 1000 pieces
Processor price current From 28.10/29.10 Change AMD Athlon XP 1800+ $ 252 $ 210 -17% 1700+ $ 190 $ 152 -20% 1600+ $ 160 $ ​​124 -23% 1500+ $ 130 $ 115 -12%

As you can see from the table, AMDs would be currently fastest Athlon XP, so again cheaper than a 1.8GHz Pentium 4.
