AMD price cuts to create desktop opportunity?

Posted on Tuesday, February 13 2007 @ 20:28:47 CET by

Taiwanese motherboard makers say that if AMD manages to keep up with demand, the new price cuts could create an interesting opportunity of impacting Intel's desktop market.
In additional news, Intel plans to drop its quad-core processor, the Core 2 Quad Q6600 (launched on January 7, 2007) from US$851 to US$530 for 1000 unit trays in the second quarter of 2007, a drop close to 37%, which should impact prices and shipments of quad-core processors in third quarter, according to motherboard makers. On the other hand, AMD's quad-core processors, the Athlon 64 FX70 to FX74 range, will remain priced between US$599 and US$999 meaning AMD will face pressure trying to compete with Intel in the quad-core sector, added the sources.
