AMD doesn't react to Intel price moves

It keeps hand on Athlon tiller

Correction Advanced Micro Devices did not reduce prices on a number of its K6-2 and K6-III parts over the weekend, as part of its new positioning strategy. We originally reported this story as fact, using info on hardware sites and other wires, but AMD has now told us no changes were made at the weekend, nor are any others in the offing. It has so far resisted the barrage of cuts by Intel, intended to make it push down the prices of its Athlon K7 part. We apologise for the earlier story, which started when another wire incorrectly re-cycled a press release, which was then subsequently picked up by other sites across the world. If we'd talked to our original impeccable but hidden sources, we wouldn't have repeated it... So we've got red faces, but the original source of the story has a face the colour of a beetroot. ®
