AMD will soon launch the Athlon 64 X2 3800+, which will be the company's cheapest dual-core processor. The 3800+ will cost $345, while the 4200+ costs $537.

AMD will also cut prices of its Sempron CPUs in early August.
Socket-A Sempron 2500+ prices are expected to be cut from US$67 at present to less than US$60 in early August, sources at motherboard makers mentioned. The price gap between AMD Sempron 2500+ CPUs and Intel Celeron D 325 CPUs will expand from US$6 currently to more than US$10 after the upcoming price-cuts planned by the two chip vendors.
Intel will lower the prices of its Celeron D processors on July 24. More details at DigiTimes
