Intel en AMD houden elkaar lekker bezig, want AMD zal de de prijzen van de K6-2 en K6-3 ook gaan verlagen, tot wel 25 procent. Dit haal ik van ZDNET:
Advanced Micro Devices Inc., keeping the heat on Intel Corp., has reduced prices on certain clock speeds of its desktop K6-2 and K6-III processors by up to 25 percent.
AMD's K6-2 475MHz desktop chip received the largest cut, falling 25 percent from $152 to $114. The K6-2 450MHz was reduced 17 percent from $112 to $93. The price of AMD's K6-2 400MHz chip was also cut by 11 percent, moving it from $82 to $73, company officials said on Friday.
Pricing for the K6-2 500MHz, introduced in late August holds steady at $167. By way of comparison, AMD arch rival Intel Corp. sells its 500MHz desktop Celeron chip for $167. Intel's 500MHz desktop Pentium III chip is priced at $251.
[break]De prijzen van de Athlon blijven echter nog wel even onveranderd:[/break]
Despite the movement on its K6 line of chips, AMD of Sunnyvale, Calif. has also held steady the prices on its high-performance Athlon chips. Athlon chips range from $815 for the 650MHz version of the chip to $249 for the 500MHz Athlon chip.
