As predicted here some weeks back, AMD will take ruthless action across its range of microprocessors on 14 August.

Intel will find it very hard to beat these prices when two flavours of its flip chip CuMine at 1GHz on the same day.

Prices below, which are expressed in US dollars, are for system integrators buying in bulk.

The 1GHz Thunderbird will cost $470, the 950MHz Athlon Thunderbird $350, the 900MHz chip $275, the 800MHz processor $185, the 750MHz Athlon $165 and the 700MHz Thunderbird $145.

Duron processors, which AMD and its partners are not actively marketing at present, are as follows: the Duron 700MHz chip will be $105, the Duron 650MHz processor $80, and the 600MHz Duron $65.

Intel will, on the same date, formally introduce its flip chip 1GHz processors in two flavours. We also have details of these which we will publish later in the day. ®
