The Inquirer says they heard from European distributors that an Athlon 64 3000+ is be released very shortly.
No official pricing yet, but given that AMD has been basing its official pricing on Intel’s, the official price will most likely be $278.
Should AMD continue to follow the Intel pricing roadmap, that would mean a price of $218 in mid-February. The next price cut would probably be in April, down to either $178 or $193.
It will be interesting to see how AMD prices the 512K version of the chip, whenever next year it comes out.
