AMD announces 64-bit Sempron prices

By on July 11, 2005, 6:19 PM
AMD has now unveiled their pricing strategy for the new 64-bit Semprons that are available in 2600+, 2800+, 3000+, 3100+, and 3300+ versions. According to information found at Digitimes, the whole 64-bit lineup features Socket-754 architecture, which will be priced slightly lower than Socket A, in order to accelerate the transition to the new Socket. Also, the price difference between 32-bit Semprons and those with 64-bit enabled, will be less than $4.

Finally, we also learn that Intel plans to cut prices on 64-bit Celerons by the end of the month. These processors are meant to compete directly with the Semprons, putting the former at an advantage in the overall cost of building a computer. Just like with high-end processors however, AMD has got the performance advantage on gaming applications.

Great news... I would combo these up with those Asrock mobo's that allow upgradeability to Socket-939 in the future.
