So that's why AMD is cutting CPU prices on 4 October. It wants to make some room for the K7 700s, which make their official debut, Monday. The launch coincides nicely with this year's Microprocessor Forum, an influential industry gathering. For the first time, AMD has serious contenders in each sub 64-bit PC CPU market sectors, cranking right the way up from $40 SKUs for cheapskates up to $700 monsters, which might even make their way into the odd server or two. Reports of naked K7 700s for sale have popped up on the Web with increasing regularity over the last couple of weeks (and thanks to everyone who pointed us to the links). ® Related Story Athlon price cuts confirmed for 4 October
