A few days ago AMD cut prices again on their desktop processors. According to Cnet all of AMD’s Dual Core X2 desktop processors are now under $200, with the highest end X2 the Athlon 64 X2 6000+ at just under $200. The 3600+ and 3800+ X2 processors have been cut from the line up leaving the X2 4000+ at $73 as the newest entry level CPU.
The FX-72 and 74 are both priced at $599 (weird).
AMD has been cutting prices left and right because of pressure from Intel. AMD has really dropped the ball when it comes to performance in the desktop CPU market. I’m hoping that with the introduction of Barcelona in the next month or so it will help them bring back the crown.
