AMD Turion 64 X2 launch to start price war?

Posted on Saturday, March 25 2006 @ 00:41:55 CET by

Taiwanese notebook makers believe the arrival of AMD's dual-core Turion 64 processors on May 9th may start a price war in the dual-core notebook market.
AMD is expected to offer better prices for its Turion 64 X2 CPU line than comparable offerings from Intel, indicated the makers.

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.
