    AMD's Quad-Core Chips Now More Affordable

    Advanced Micro Devices has lowered the prices on its desktop-class microprocessors. The decrease is less than intangible.

    Based on the new price-list of AMD, which quotes prices for customers getting 1000+ central processing units (CPUs), the Sunnyvale, California-based chip supplier slightly dropped its pricing by $3 - $22. For example, premium-class AMD Phenom II X4 965 with unlocked multiplier now costs $165.

    Noteworthy, but the new decrease also stresses AMD's reluctance to drop pricing of quad-core AMD Athlon II X4 below $100 or $99.

    The intangible decrease may mean that the company is confident of its product lineup for the back-to-school (BTS) season

    No. It is more likely in response to Intel Slashes Prices. AMD's key selling point is "bang for the money".
