AMD quietly trimmed the prices of a handful of bottom-of-the-line Athlon XP processors this week, presumably in a bid to match the cuts Intel made to Celeron desktop prices at the weekend.

The Athlon XPs granted price cuts this time round were the 2600+, 2500+, 2400+ 2200+ and 2100+. All other XP prices saw no change. The five prices changed were reduced by only small percentages, between two and ten per cent.

Athlon XP price cuts
Processor Prev. Price New Price Change
2600+ $103 $93 -9.7%
2500+ $89 $87 -2%
2400+ $84 $81 -4%
2200+ $74 $71 -4%
2100+ $74 $69 -7%
