AMD has cut its desktop CPU prices following Intel's second round of Pentium 4 price reductions yesterday.

AMD sliced between 24.5 and 47.7 per cent - most of them in the 38.4 per cent and up band - off the prices of Athlons and Durons.

The new Athlon prices, according to German Web site Chips.de - we're still awaiting confirmation from AMD UK - are:

  Price Reduction
1.33GHz (133MHz FSB) $183 47.7
1.3 GHz (100MHz FSB) $173 45.6
1.2GHz (133MHz FSB) $158 46.3
1.2 GHz (100MHz FSB) $156 41.8
1.1GHz (133MHz FSB) $158 40.4
1.1 GHz (100MHz FSB) $141 41.5
1 GHz (133MHz FSB) $138 38.4
950 MHz (100MHz FSB) $123 32.41
900 MHz (100MHz FSB) $100 41.9

And for Durons:

  Price Reduction
900MHz $79 38.8
850MHz $65 41.4
800MHz $53 41.1
750MHz $40 24.5
