Just how hard are the price cuts? Well, AMD are slashing the prices of its top-end parts by 15-25%. The A10-7850K was $189 on NewEgg, but it is now $143, where the A10-7800 was $165, is now $133. These cuts have AMD competing at a better price point against Intel now, especially when it comes to Intel's Core i3 and Core i5 processors.
