The Register verblijdt ons met de mededeling dat AMD de prijzen van haar Athlons op 28 februari zal gaan verlagen. Intel zal op dezelfde dag overigens ook een prijsdaling invoeren. Hieronder het complete bericht:
We know from an Intel document that it will chop prices on its chips on February 28th. And now we learn that AMD will also slash its prices across all members of its Athlon range, and on the same day.
These will be the AMD prices on its premier Athlon K7 line of processors in a fortnight.
The 500MHz Athlon will drop to $54, the 533MHz to $70, the 600MHz to $189, the 650MHz to $243, the 700MHz Athlon to $344, the 750MHz Athlon to $474, the 800MHz Athlon to $672 and the newly released 850MHz to…err $850.
The price cuts from AMD indicate that it proceeding smoothly on its path, phasing out the lower members of the family as it introduces higher speed, and also slightly less expensive Athlons.
As yet, we have no price details about the Intel cuts on the same day, but will strive to bring them to you as soon as we can.
