AMD decreases of up to 30% Posted on 10/07/2007 at 00:10 by Nicolas
As planned, AMD will proceed with lowering its prices. We can see the appearance of a Turion 64 X2 TL-66 set at 2.3GHz and an Athlon 64 X2 4200+ at 2.2GHz, and the disappearance of other lower processors in their respective segments. This decrease in prices is relatively significant as the Athlon X2 4000+ goes down almost 30%, while it isn’t as great for the rest of the line.
You may remember, that Intel will also do the same on July 22 and as long as there won’t be any immediate innovations, AMD could only lightly anticipate this to limit the effect on its sales. As for the price of the Athlon 64 FX, this concerns the price for a pair of these processors, and surprisingly, it’s the same amount for the two models.
