AMD yesterday trimmed its prices, following on from the cuts Intel made to its Pentium 4 and Celeron prices on Sunday.

The Opteron line saw some of the biggest cuts, with the price of the 844 falling 40 per cent, but the AMD's focus was its 32-bit Athlon chips. Some parts' prices were left unchanged, other reduced.

Among AMD's mobile Athlon chips, the bottom-of-the-range parts were dropped, as was the Athlon XP-M DTR 2500+. The DTR 1900+ went, as did the Low-voltage 1500+ and the mainstream 1700+.

AMD made one introduction: the XP-M 3000+.
