Apparently, amid rumours that Intel were going to slash the pricing of their Pentium D range, AMD has announced price cuts for its mid to low-end Athlon 64 X2 processors.

According to AMD's website , pricing for high-end Athlons, including the FX series, X2 5600+ and 5400+ remains unchanged, while the X2 5200+ saw a hefty cut from US$403 to US$295. Reductions continue down the rest of the range with prices falling around US$25 at the top of the scale to around US$15 at the bottom.

The price of the single-core Athlon 64 3800+ also fell from US$108 to US$101, however, the price of the slower 3500+ remained unchanged. Prices for the lowest speed CPU, the Athlon 3200+ is no longer posted on AMD's website. Pricing for the lowest-end Sempron processors also fell with the 3200+ being reduced from US$67 to US$51, and the 3000+ (both 256KB and 128KB L2 cache versions) falling from US$56 to US$41 all in units of 1000.

Some nice prices amongst that lot for those looking for a bargain. Feel free to discuss thiis article in our forum
