DailyTech recently reported that AMD will release its new Turion X2 64 processors, with the entry-level segment starting at 1.6GHz and the flagship topping out at 2.2GHz with 2MB of L2 cache, on May 9.
Intel will reportedly implement price cuts of 13-50% for its dual-core processors in April with more price adjustments in the third quarter of this year. Currently, unit prices of dual-core Napa notebooks are as high as NT$44,900-65,800 (US$1,375-2,015) and demand for the high-cost models is unexpectedly slow, sources at Taiwan notebook makers found.
