AMD Lowers Athlon XP Prices

| Posted: Nov 12, 2002 7:29 pm

In response to Intel's November 11th price cuts on their Celeron processors, AMD has decided to lower the pricing on their popular Athlon XP processors. Prices have dropped roughly 40% on from CPU's ranging from the 2200+ to the 1700+. Now, if we could see some nice deals on the 2600+!

 

According to other sources, AMD cut prices for the Athlon XP 2200+, 2100+, 2000+, 1900+, 1800+ and 1700+ processors. The Athlon XP 2200+ was said to be still priced at over US$100, while the prices of the other five processors fell by as much as about 40% to US$60-90. Prices of the high-end Athlon XP 2400+, 2600+, 2700+ and 2800+ remained unchanged.

 

AMD's price cuts, said to have been decided about half a month ago, are apparently aimed at stimulating buying and boosting market share. The company must also brace for the impact of Intel's price reductions on Socket 478-based Celeron processors, originally not planned for the fourth quarter but recently moved up to November 10.
