I think this is pretty big news. The price cuts are going to be huge!

AMD Athlon 64 price cuts will receive price cut up to 30%
AMD Athlon 64 X2 will receive price cuts up to 50%
AMD Sempron processors will receive price cuts up to 15%

The article states that the AMD Athlon 3800+ could go as low as $152 USD.. That is as cheap as what a 3500+ is priced at today on newegg.
The AM2 3800+ is already priced at around $165. (that definately beats the $230+ i was going to spend on a Socket 939 3700+ about a month ago).

I may finally build that AMD Gaming system I've always wanted.

That's great! I might finally go for a 4800+ dual core.

I'll move this to the Computing News forum.

Do those price cuts include the AM2 series? I mean, they are 64 and X2 processors.

I hope they include the AM2 series that means I might upgrade my entire system that I just bought 2 weeks ago.

It actually only specifies AM2, but it only makes sense to lower all their CPUs and not just one socket.

The memos only mention the AM2 processors; however the AM2 parts are now priced identically with Socket 939 components. AMD has previously indicated that the aim of the AM2 processors was to be price competitive with its legacy components.

Yeah I agree this is going to make a lot of people upgrade or choose the AM2 over the 939 socket.

AMD is mainly doing this to get ready for Vista.

The 939 is fully compataible and ready for vista too. AMD just wants people to get the newer chip, kinda like how the 7900s being cheaper than the 7800s.

Well, I think that means I am going to pick AM2 on my next build for sure. Hopefully that happens soon.

I did a project in school on AMD's stock in computer class..(no one but me had any idea what AMD was) and it was quite shabby.

A lot of people never heard of AMD nor know what the hell they do which is funny, but then again it is AMD's fault because there is never an AMD commercial Wink

Intel has a lot of the OEMs in a lockout to only use their chips. Thats what some of the antitrust suite they filed against intel was about. I think with the opeteron 2 and 8 series AMD has been focusing it's energy on the server side, where by the numbers they beat out the Intel Itanium 2, Xeon and Xeon MP processors by significant figures.

AMD will never overtake Intel in the chip market, unless something major happens to Intel it is literally impossible.

Completly overtake, no, just as you say.

Now if they had a repeat of the old P1 floating point decimal problem then that may do it. Intel was paying people to either keep their old defective P1 or they could get the replacement chip for the recall.

The literature for the AMD Opty and the test are conclusive, the opty outperforms the intel server chips. There have been some good news stories for amd and stress tests. THGs torture test showe the AMD ran for longer times and was more stable than the P4. Until AMD gets the marketing up to intel's level and ties down a major named OEM like Dell (in Intel's pocket for the desktops and its shown on the commercials) then they are never going to get a bigger light in the chip market.

Towards the end of this year if not early 2007. Really depends if Intel is going to rush the technology or not. But just to let you investors know INTEL is looking to be an excellent stock to purchase! Look at its low price and huge potential!

I thought I read that it is coming out on the 23rd of July? I remember because that was my birthday. I was happy to read that there was supposed to be huge price drops on the next day. I hope that didn't change. I'd love to spend a little less of my birthday money. Razz
