AMD 1900+ Price Cuts Coming Soon

AMD must, by now, feature in every Intel executive's nightmare. And for good reasons too. AMD has decided to unleash hell+ on its arch rival.
October 29th just one day after Intel will proceed with price cuts on their processor range, AMD will also cut the prices of its recently introduced Athlon XP range.

As if this wasn't enough, the new Athlon XP 1900+ (1.6 GHz) will arrive in time for the holiday season.
The 0.18 micron range will be completed by two more processors (expected at 1.667GHz and 1.733GHz early in 2002) even though no one seems to know what their new-style code numbers will be.
Q1 of 2002 will also see the release of the new 0.13 micron range, code named thoroughbred clocking at 1.733 GHz. This will be followed by the 1.8 GHz model in Q2 2002.

The prices of the new XP range:

XP 1500+ original price (10/9/01) $130 New Price (29/10/01) $115

XP 1600+ original price (10/9/01) $160 New Price (29/10/01) $124

XP 1700+ original price (10/9/01) $190 New Price (29/10/01) $152

XP 1800+ original price (10/9/01) $252 New Price (29/10/01) $210

AMD 1900+ Price Cuts Coming Soon

Why is my AMD Athlon 1.33Ghz getting so hot? I only play for 2 hours and my Athlon is frying itself, and without Overclock.And my PIII 1Ghz has no problem with it leavin it on al week.They both have a heatsink.And both of my PCs are equipped with an GeForce 2 GTS/PRO (Ti200),but the PIII seems to get better scores at benchmarking (3D Mark2K), and both using te latest Dets.I dont know what to say, but I thought an Athlon was much better.Scores:AMD: 7543PIII: 8398

amd are by far the best, theres no doubt about it. if your computer is going to burn down your house then there is something really wrong with it and you need to get it looked at. and i gan actually garuntee that the amd will run faster than your stupid intel 1ghz.

if you are to dumb to put fukn cooling on a processor then you diserve to be on fire. And dont forget that athlons started out at like 450 mhz and have been clocked to 4 times as much. think of it like taking a 1.3ghz p4 and ocing it to 5ghz. athlons were built to compete against the p3 and ended up beating the p4..........thats just sad. PS- i dont see you guys bagging on Nvidia cause geforce3's are forced to have huge heatsinks that render your first pci slot useless when all the radeon 8500 has is a small fan. so who gives a fuk which one is hotter its all about proformance. what would you rather have a 1.4 ghz athlon that runs at 120 f or a 400 mhz p2 that runs at 80 f?

ahh, dont you just love the names of the new XP range, names like 1900+, when the chip itself is running at 1.6 Ghz. If this is not a ploy to pray on people who dont have much experience with pc's, into thinking that the 1900+ is 1.9 Ghz, then im gonna test the theorie that if you shoot yourself in the foot with an AK-47 kills you. AMD are desperate, you can cook eggs on their chips, and we should all laugh at them. THINK SENSE, BUY SENSE, BUY PENTIUM!!!

lol@stupid people who think that Mhz=actual speed of a processor. I know processors running at 450mhz giving twice the perfomance of 1gh cpus. Its the ammount of instructions that can be pushed per clock cycle that matters. (e.g 1ghz chip doin 1 instruction per cycle gives 1g of instructions per seccond. A 450mhz chip doing 5 instructions per cycle does 2.25g of instructions per seccond) and looking at AMD chip specs most people will find em faster even while running at lower mhz.
