AMD slashes chip prices by up to 25%

Desktop, mobile lines pruned too

AMD took the axe to its desktop and mobile processor families this morning, chopping up to 26 per cent off what it charges for its chips.

The company reduced prices for its mobile Turion 64, dual-core desktop Athlon 64 X2 series, Mobile Athlon 64 products, and both mobile and desktop Sempron processors.

Athlon 64 and Athlon 64 FX prices remain unchanged, though AMD took the opportunity to drop its two bottom-most Athlon 64 parts, the 3000+ and 2800+. The Mobile Athlon 64 2800+ is also no longer with us.

Gone too are the Socket 754 desktop Semprons, the remaining Socket A desktop Semprons and all Socket 939 versions without 64-bit support.

AMD's full price list, valid as of 24 October 2005, can be found here. ®
