Na de prijsdaling van de Intel-processors heeft ook AMD bekend dat ze hun prijzen zullen verlagen. Het doel van deze verlaging is de processors meer aantrekkelijk maken voor toekomstige kopers.

De dalingen variƫren van 5% tot zelf 20% bij de Athlon XP 2100+

Price cuts on desktop chips ranged from a 20 percent cut on the Athlon XP 2100+, which went from $224 to $180, to a 5 percent cut on the Athlon XP 2200+, which dropped from $241 to $230.

AMD also lowered the price on its Athlon XP 2000+ by 16 percent, from $193 to $163. The Athlon XP 1900+ chip fell 13 percent, from $172 to $150; the Athlon XP 1800+ dropped 11 percent, from $160 to $142; and the price of the Athlon XP 1700+ was shaved 7 percent, from $140 to $130. AMD's Athlon XP 1600+ desktop chip stayed at $130.
Deze prijzen tellen enkel per 1000 stuks , de prijzen die verkopers aanrekenen variƫren meestal nog grotendeels.

AMD made fewer cuts on the mobile Athlon XP. It held the line on its new mobile Athlon XP 1800+, which lists for $335. But it did lower the price of its mobile Athlon XP 1700+ by 11 percent, from $235 to $210, and cut the mobile Athlon XP 1600+ by 4 percent, from $192 to $185. The company kept prices on the mobile Athlon XP 1400+ and 1500+ chips the same at $150 and $175, respectively.

AMD's biggest price reductions of the week came on its mobile Duron chip. Pricing on that chip, aimed at low-cost notebooks, was lowered by up to 26 percent. The price on AMD's 1.3GHz mobile Duron was sliced by 10 percent, from $134 to $120. The largest cut, 26 percent, dropped the 1.2GHz mobile Duron from $120 to $89. The 1.1GHz mobile Duron was reduced by 22 percent, from $89 to $69.

AMD also sliced the prices of its 1.3GHz and 1.2GHz desktop Duron chips by 11 percent, from $72 to $64, and by 6 percent, from $68 to $64, respectively.

Price cuts on its Athlon MP 1800+, 1900+, 2000+ and 2100+ chips for workstations and servers ranged from 14 percent to 16 percent. The chips, which once sold in the range of $192 to $262, now list for $166 to $224. AMD also dropped the price on the Athlon MP 1600+ by 3 percent, from $154 to $150.

Van Intel wordt niet meer verwacht dat ze hun prijzen laten dalen tot dat ze hun nieuwe 2.8GHz processor uitbrengen.
