Additionally, the Santa Clara, Calif.-based chipmaker will release on Monday an 850MHz version of its budget Celeron processor.The Inquirer has a list of AMD's price cuts. Whichever way you lean, price cuts are beneficial to all.

Intel and AMD are slated to officially cut prices by 20 percent or more April 15 and 16, respectively, according to several sources. Those coming price cuts, however, are already in effect at many retailers.
"AMD is being forced into a frequency match-up, which is beneficial to Intel," he said. "AMD is stuck with pricing based on megahertz."
