AMD Cuts Prices on High-end Processors

AMD has cut prices on its high-end dual-core desktop processors and has announced its new restructuring plans to compensate for reduced quarterly revenue. As usual, prices are in 1,000 unit quantities. The price cuts affect AMD Athlon 64 X2 for single processor desktops and Athlon 64 FX Quad FX processors. Quad FX Athlon 64 FX-74 and FX-72 processors prices drop to $799 and $599 from $999 and $799, respectively. AMD no longer lists the Athlon 64 FX70, the lowest priced pair of Quad FX processors, in its price list. All AMD Athlon 64 X2 processors are now priced under $250:

  • Model ( Previous Price to New Price )
  • X2 6000+ ( $464 to 241 )
  • X2 5600+ ( $326 to $188 )
