Intel & AMD cut prices

Chipmakers Intel and Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) recently announced [URL=http://www.digitimes.com/NewsShow/Article.asp?datePublish=2003/02/25&pages=PR&seq=202]price cuts[/URL] on their processor lines for desktops and servers/workstations, with discounts reaching as high as 21% for Intel and 31.8% for AMD.

If you were planning on investing in a new CPU you may want to wait a couple of days until prices settle and get a better price. With the price cuts in mind, I would say the best value can be got from the [URL=http://techspot.pricegrabber.com/search_getprod.php/masterid=584311]P4 2.53GHz[/URL] and AthlonXPs [URL=http://techspot.pricegrabber.com/search_getprod.php/masterid=655045]2700+[/URL] & [URL=http://techspot.pricegrabber.com/search_getprod.php/masterid=634891]2400+[/URL].

I certainly miss the AMD bandwagon somewhat after I switched to a Pentium 4 a couple of months ago, in the other hand, both Thomas and Derek (P66) are enjoying their new shining XP CPUs ;).
