AMD have just slashed prices on their mid to high-end Athlon 64 X2 processor lineup, with prices having already been cut on lower end desktop chips a couple weeks ago.

Digitimes have a graph posted up which shows the decrease in pricing on each of the models, and there sure is quite a cut on some of them, particularly with the two top-most models (X2 5600+ and 5400+).

AMD has publish yet another set of price cuts this time for its mid- to high-end dual-core desktop CPUs, the Athlon 64 X2. A recently as January 22, AMD announced similar cuts for its lower-end desktop models, and on February 7 the company slashed prices for its Opteron series server-targeted processors.

The price cuts published on AMD's website today begin with the Athlon 64 X2 5600+, currently the top-end processor in the range, falling in price from US$505 to US$326, while the next highest model, the 5400+ is reduced even further from US$485 to US$267.
