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

2600+ $103 $93 -9.7%
2500+ $89 $87 -2%
2400+ $84 $81 -4%
2200+ $74 $71 -4%
2100+ $74 $69 -7%
