Besides slashing the prices on its already introduced microprocessors, AMD also quietly added two new 45 watt single-core CPUs to its lineup: The 2.4 GHz LE-1620 (1 MB L2 cache, 45 watt), priced at $53 and the 2.2 GHz LE-1600 (1 MB L2 cache, 45 watt), which lists for $47.
The price reductions should drive the firmís processors deeper into the mainstream and entry-level segment. However, with the transition to next-generation platforms to take place soon, analysts believe this will not affect demand much in the fourth quarter.
