Updated In the event, AMD made only one price cut yesterday, dropping the top-end Athlon XP 1800+ from $252 to $223, a fall of 12 per cent. Not much, you might think, but presumably sufficient in AMD's view to pitch the part against Intel's mid-range Pentium 4s.

AMD also trimmed its Duron prices a little and dropped some T'bird Athlons.
Once again, the prices quoted are AMD's official numbers, based on volume purchases of 1000 chips. Street prices for boxed processor are likely to be somewhat lower, so there's really no need to let us know that you can get them for less on CheapAsChips.com. ®
