AMD to fight Conroe with lower prices

Posted on Thursday, Jul 13 2006 @ 22:05 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
TG Daily heard from AMD that they will fight the Intel Core 2 Duo processors by lowering the prices on their Athlon 64 X2 processors.
The spokesperson said AMD refuses to lose price/performance leadership with the launch of Core 2 Duo. As a result, AMD will reduce prices in order that performance-per-dollar metrics will remain competitive with, if not outperform, Intel's. This measure will keep AMD on a competitive pace with Intel, THG was told, until that company can bring its 65 nm foundries fully online. As far as we know, this price drop will apply to performance desktop CPUs only, not to AMD's Opteron or Turion lines, and probably not to Semprons.
