Who produces processors cheapest?

There is an ongoing dispute between AMD and Intel not only about the speed of their processors; whoever produces his processors at the lowest cost is also of great importance for the two rivals in the CPU market.

Both AMD boss Jerry Sanders and Intel's chief financial officer Andy Bryant have been claiming for months that they are the cheapest manufacturing method with the lowest cost use. However, the analysts have now spoken out and announced a tie between the chip giants. The production of silicon for a Pentium 4 processor is said to cost around US $ 21, and that of an AMD Athlon is said to cost around US $ 22. After further manufacturing steps, the final prices are between 130 and 637 US dollars. The cheapest manufacturing costs mean for the manufacturer that he has a competitive advantage in the market despite the billions in investments in factories and development, because he can offer his processors cheaper.
