The Slide Continues

Add Your Comments

A few days ago, we wrote about AMD price cuts.

Well, since then prices have slid a bit more in the United States. The low Pricewatch price for the lower end of AMD’s Hammer line is now:

CPU
Socket
Price
Sempron 3100: 130nm
754
$111
Athlon 2800: 130nm
754
$120
Athlon 3000: 130nm
754
$133
Athlon 3000: 90nm
939
$150
Athlon 3200: 130nm
754
$180
Athlon 3200: 90nm
939
$180
Athlon 3400: 130nm
754
$216
Athlon 3500: 130nm
939
$262
Athlon 3500: 90nm
939
$279

These prices are generally a bit less than they were a few days ago, for instance, the 90nm 3000+ went from $160 to $150, or a drop of about 6%.

Is there any more coming?

Two processors that might shortly go down a bit more in price are the 3000+ and 3500+. The socket 754 versions of those processors cost $17 less than the socket 939s for these two speeds. However, for the 3200+, there is no such price difference.

On the other hand, if AMD does want the socket 939s to cost a little more than the 754s, maybe the 3200+ will go down a bit in price.
