Heise Online has taken stock of AMD's latest price cuts, which affect all but a handful of processors. Though none of AMD's new Athlon 64 CPUs will see a price cut this time around, prices are dropping on Opterons and Athlon XPs by as much as 35%. Those coveting an Athlon 64 FX-51 will want to note that the Opteron 146 now costs only $438nearly $300 less than the FX-51. Considering that the Opteron 146 is, for all intents and purposes, an Athlon 64 FX clocked at 2.0GHz, $438 looks like a pretty good deal.
On the 32-bit front, Athlon XP prices are falling, too. Though the enthusiast-favorite Barton Athlon XP 2500+'s price remains unchanged at $89, the 3200+, 3000+, and 2800+ see price cuts between 30 and 22%.
