AMD also with price reductions

AMD also with price reductions

The guys from AMDzone have got their hands on an interesting document that not only notes the planned price reductions for 2001, but also lists two new processors. On the one hand, there is the Athlon, clocked at 1.3GHz, which appears in the list for the first time on March 5th and will therefore also be officially presented on this day.

On the other hand, there is the 900MHz Duron with its introduction Obviously, further price cuts are planned, but no official date has yet been set. AMD has planned the following prices:

Price for the purchase of 1000 pieces
Clock frequency Currently March 5th, 01 ??. ??. 01 Athlon 1.3GHz - $ 265 $ 223 1.2GHz $ 254 $ 223 $ 201 1.1GHz $ 223 $ 201 $ 170 1.0GHz $ 179 $ 170 $ 152 950MHz $ 161 $ 152 $ 143 900MHz $ 143 $ 143 $ 125 850MHz $ 125 $ 125 - Duron 900MHz - - $ 100 850MHz $ 100 $ 89 $ 79 800MHz $ 79 $ 72 $ 65 750MHz $ 65 $ 60 $ 55

As you can see from the table, the prices are practically passed through from the bottom up, so that it can be expected that the new 1.3GHz Athlon will be available for the next price reduction, which is no longer listed in this table, as expensive as a 1.2GHz Athlon will be as things stand. The in a box variants of the Athlon and Duron recently offered by AMD are on average 12 US dollars more expensive than the prices listed above.
