The Register says AMD will soon cut prices of its Sempron processors. Recently AMD stopped producing Socket A processors and Socket 754 Semprons are now already less expensive than their Socket A counterparts with the same model number.

AMD Taiwan's general manager believes 50 percent of AMD's CPU shipments will be Sempron processors in the third quarter of this year.

He also states AMD plans to increase prices of Athlon64, Athlon64 FX and Turion chips to boost Q3 net income.
