AMD reduces pricing on all desktop and mobile CPUs

By Justin Mann on February 15, 2006, 3:30 PM
In a move that will make a lot of people very, very happy, AMD has reduced pricing on their processors across the board, affecting both mobile and desktop CPUs, which cuts as massive as 50%. The most popular chips, the X2s, saw reductions as high as 20%, much needed with the cheapest X2 being around $300 originally. Mobile chips including the A64 and Turion varied, some being cut nearly a third. This has been a long time in coming, and many people have been unhappy with the lingering prices of older AMD A64 chips. Doubtless, AMD is feeling the heat with more Intel price cuts planned on their chips. With AMD's plan to move over to the M2 socket and DDR2 as well, it makes sense to spurn interest in their lines. Prices of retail chips should fall accordingly, so keep your eyes peeled.
