Will AMD cut its prices on Monday? Intel is expected to do so the day before, ahead of the introduction of its 'Prescott' processor, and it wouldn't surprise anyone to learn the its arch-rival might be planning such a spoiling tactic.

Reuters yesterday claimed AMD would indeed make a number of adjustments to its price list on Monday, citing Susquehanna Financial Group analyst Tai Ngyuen, who claimed to have received the info from sources within the chip maker's sales team.

Soon after, however, Reuters posted a second story, in which an AMD spokeswoman denied the allegation.

"AMD is not planning a price change next week," she told the agency. "We don't disclose price changes in advance but I will confirm we don't have any plans for next week."

AMD last amended its processor prices on 6 January when it added the Athlon 64 3400+ to its desktop line and three new mobile versions of the chip. It is expected to launch the Athlon 64 FX-53 in the not-too-distant future. ®
