AMD to cut CPU prices next month?

Posted on Friday, March 14 2008 @ 04:00:48 CET by


X-bit Labs claims AMD will cut prices of its processors in April.
Back in early February a source familiar with the plans of AMD revealed that AMD Phenom processor models 9550 (2.20GHz), 9650 (2.30GHz) and 9750 (2.40GHz) based on the new stepping will be released commercially in April. The new microprocessors are based on the new B3 core stepping and should generally have a little higher performance due to the lack of the well-known TLB erratum compared to AMD Phenom models 9500 and 9600 available now.

On the 7th of April the world’s second largest maker of x86 microprocessors plans to cut the pricing on existing products: AMD Phenom 9500, 9600 and 9600 Black Edition, as well as on AMD Athlon 64 X2 models 4400+, 4600+, 4800+, 5000+, 5000+ Black Edition, 5200+, 5400+, 5600+, 6000+ and 6400+, reports Planet3DNow.de web-site citing sources among resellers of AMD products. Additionally, AMD will reduce the cost of its low-power Athlon 64 and low-cost AMD Sempron central processing units.

The introduction of new CPU models as well as another price-cut will help AMD to better compete against its main rival Intel Corp., who has been holding microprocessor performance crown for about 1.5 years now.
