Cadence does Intel on .18µ, .15µ pricing

Slash and burn as Synopsis does opposite

The same day that Synopsis put up its pricing on its sub .18µ software suite, Cadence did the opposite and slashed its suite by around 80 per cent. Cadence said it would cut prices on its Envisia Ambit synthesis product with immediate effect. But this stuff isn't cheap. Its new European list price is $30,000. Synopsis has just raised its prices. It's sort of a symbolically abstracted Intel-AMD price war, we reckon. ®
