The Inquirer says AMD is readying some rather substantial
price cuts
across its Socket AM2 line of processors. According to
distributor prices obtained by the site, Athlon 64 3000+, 3200+, 3500+,
and 3800+ chips will drop to $89, $99, $109, and $139, respectively. If
genuine, those figures will be up to twice as low as those in AMD’s current
price list
, which shows prices of $189 and $290 for the 3500+ and
3800+. The Inq doesn’t have any juicy numbers for Athlon 64 X2 dual-core
processors, but the site does insist that AMD’s entire Socket AM2 lineup
will see prices slashed.

Such drastic price cuts would likely be a response to similar aspirations from Intel. Late last
month, HKEPC reported that Intel would drop prices across its Pentium D,
Pentium 4, and Celeron D lines come July 23. Most Pentium D chips are
reportedly expected to fall around or below the $200 mark, with the 2.8
GHz 820 model due to sink from its currently listed (PDF) $209 down to $113. Meanwhile, the Pentium 4 line will
supposedly top out at $183 with the 3.6 GHz Pentium 4 661, which Intel
currently lists at a whopping $401. If HKEPC and The Inquirer have their
facts straight, this summer could be quite an opportune time for a system
upgrade.
