Bridging the IT gap between rising business demands and ageing tools

Updated We know from an Intel document that it will chop prices on its chips on February 28th. And now we learn that AMD will also slash its prices across members of its Athlon range, and on the same day. These will be the AMD prices on its premier Athlon K7 line of processors in a fortnight, as well as reductions on the K6-2s. The 500MHz K6-2 will drop to $54, the 533MHz K6-2 to $70, the Athlon 600MHz to $189, the 650MHz to $243, the 700MHz Athlon to $344, the 750MHz Athlon to $474, the 800MHz Athlon to $672 and the newly released 850MHz to $850. The price cuts from AMD indicate that it proceeding smoothly on its path, phasing out the lower members of the family as it introduces higher speed, and also slightly less expensive Athlons. As yet, we have no price details about the Intel cuts on the same day, but will strive to bring them to you as soon as we can. ®
