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.
