Intel and AMD cut prices

  1. As pointed out in this article over at Digitimes, Intel has cut prices of the entire Celeron line having the fastest 2.4GHz CPU selling for less than $90, with the rest of the Celerys selling below that mark obviously.

    From what I could observe, merchants have more or less followed the new pricing:
    Celeron 2.2 GHz - $77
    Celeron 2.0 GHz - $64

    Generally one would say Celerons better suit low-end machines but that shouldn't be the case for well informed buyers, x-bit also reports on AMD Athlon price cuts, putting the company on a position where they are by far a better buy than both Celerons and most Pentium 4 CPUs.

    If you compare to Celeron prices above (and the huge performance advantage):
    Athlon XP 2200+ - $76
    Athlon XP 2000+ - $65

    And if you are looking for higher performing bargains (starting from):
    Athlon XP 2400+ - $86
    Athlon XP 2600+ - $106
    Athlon XP 2800+ - $185
