AMD follows suit with price cuts

After Intel already lowered the prices for its own processors yesterday, AMD has now followed suit with new prices. At up to 28 percent, the price reduction at AMD is not quite as strong as that at Intel.

Both the Athlon XP and the Athlon MP, in particular, the faster models have been significantly reduced in price. But the much cheaper Duron has also become cheaper again. The following prices apply today for the purchase of 1000 pieces:

CPU model Old price New price Reduction Athlon XP - Palomino Core Athlon XP 2100+ $ 420 $ 330 21% Athlon XP 2000+ $ 339 $ 280 17% Athlon XP 1900+ $ 231 $ 220 5% Athlon XP 1800+ $ 188 $ 180 4% Athlon XP 1700+ $ 160 $ ​​160 Athlon MP - Palomino Core Athlon MP 2000+ $ 415 $ 299 28% Athlon MP 1900+ $ 319 $ 242 24% Athlon MP 1800+ $ 273 $ 218 20% Athlon MP 1600+ $ 210 $ 183 13% Duron - Morgan Core Duron 1.3GHz $ 103 $ 84 18% Duron 1.2GHz $ 89 $ 79 11% Duron 1.1GHz $ 74 $ 69 7% Duron 1.0GHz $ 69 $ 64 7%

As we can see, AMD's processors are in purchasing when comparing the model numbers again a little cheaper ( see also ) than the much higher clocked Pentium 4 processors. Thus the old balance between the two opponents is restored. To what extent the dealers pass on this price reduction is a completely different question. From this point of view, Intel's processors are usually offered well above the purchase price, whereas processors from AMD sometimes even change hands below the purchase price.

The last price reduction from AMD is already in placealmost three months back. Let's see to what extent AMD can follow Intel's price targets in the future.
