Despite taking a charge in the fourth quarter that could approach one billion dollars, AMD is slashing prices on its mid-range and low-end Athlon XP processors. AMD's post-cut prices have the Athlon XP 2100+ at only $93, and the Athlon XP 1700+ at just $53. With prices that low, who needs Durons?
Despite price cuts for low-end and mid-range processors, prices are unchanged for Athlon XPs faster than 2400+. After all, AMD does have to make some money somewhere.
