...but when?

We have in our hands a new, but incomplete, AMD OEM price list, due to take effect from 9 October. However, we understand that AMD may be having second thoughts (over timing, as opposed to pricing). And who could blame the company for making hay, while Intel don't shine.

Full details of the price cuts are not yet available - and AMD refuses to confirm or deny that a price move was in the pipeline - but if the changes we've seen are matched across the board, Intel should be worried.

An 850MHz Athlon drops by more than 50 per cent from around $350 to $165, while the little Duron 600 moves from $79 to $53. Other revised prices include Athlon 700, 750 and 800MHz at $116, $130 and $149 respectively. ®
