AMD has more price cuts up its sleeve
The Athlon 64 X2 processor lineup saw some significant price adjustments back in early July, likely as a preemptive strike from AMD against the launch of Intel's Core 2 Duo E6050 line. However, if a report by The Inquirer is to be believed, AMD isn't quite done trimming prices yet.
The site says AMD has informed its partners in the distribution channel that some Socket AM2 Athlon 64 X2 chips will go down in price yet again on August 13. Chips affected by the change will include Athlon 64 X2 models 4000+, 4200+, and 4400+, which are currently listed at a respective $73, $83, and $94 in AMD's price list. The Inq doesn't reveal the extent of the upcoming cuts, but they could help AMD counter Intel's purported plan to bring down the price of the Pentium E2140 to $64 later this month.
