AMD Slashes Prices

In response to Intel's price cuts early last week, AMD, are slashing their prices too.
The new price list announced is :

1.2GHz - $254
1.1GHz - $223
1.0GHz - $179
950MHz - $161
900MHz - $143
850MHz - $125
800MHz - $110
750MHz - $95
700MHz - $85.

The price of the Duron's will also change. The 800MHz processor will cost $79, the 750MHz $65 and the 700MHz, $55.

It really looks like AMD have managed to change Intel's pricing policies and by the look of things, will continue to do so.

First of all, I currently own two PC's. One is Athlon powered at 1GHz, and one is Intel at 1GHz also. I am not posting to brag, read on...First of all, I mixed and matched components in both and I have to say that if you want raw processing power... go for intel. But if you want incredible performance and stability in the newest games, go for an athlon. Intel still comes out on top when it comes to servers and such in my book, but athlon wipes the floor with intel when it comes to the games! (This is my opinion based on personal experience)- Kibbles

Yeah Yeah, First of all Athlon Kicks Ass!! Intel PIII is just a joke when comparing to a Thunderbird Athlon.. Double the speed and divide the cost to half. That is really whats different between the two processors. I had a PIII 600 and upgraded to an Athlon 800 the difference is amazing.

Another one!!! Don't tell me P4 gonna kick ass, cuz its already f***ed up!! Without the P4 optimized software itz a ship that ran aground. If yo gonna compare P4 to AMD wait for the upcoming "ClawHammer and SledgeHammer" CPU's from AMD which are also gonna have 128 bit "core". And guess what unlike P4 theyll be backwards compatible with your pre-loved software.. Heheheheheh Intel will be really f***ed then!!!

AMD Is the Raining God no matter what anyone says AMD will bring the death of intel they are too ld a company to compete with the power perfromace price of AMD, Intels Futer is Sealed AMD Will Take the Cpu world market by sorm intel will be as crappy as win 98 They Just Can't Hope to Compete, Die Intel!!!!!!!

I love my athalon 550 but if the prices are this low just how fast of a processor can i put in my old board? I checked out there web site and couldn't find specs on any of the chips clocking in over 750. well maybe i will just have to look harder.

I have a AMD 600 Duron and it cost about £70 here in the UK and find that cheep. I just cant wait for this price slash cause ill then upgrade to a GHZ for a meer £150 (NOT BAD). I would just like to take this last sentence to say INTEL suck ass and AMD rule!!!

Im another Avid UK Gamer, I bought my 1gig TBird a while back and paid a hefty £400 (with Asus mobo, Heatsink and Fan) for it and quite frankly it wipes the floor with any Intel Chip that ive seen, and for all u little kids who think Intel is still the best even with their *ahem* "new" Pentium4 i suggest u run along to Toms Hardware.com and read the p3 vs p4 vs TBird tests..... then u can say you r sorry! =P

AMD Slashes Prices

IID you are gay...p4 sucks ass and yes amd is killing intel now...only until they f**ked up on the p4 amd was not in the lead....now amd can pick up there pace and pass intel with the f**k up they did to themselves

GO AMD! Man i hate pentium, they jump into shit WAAAAY to damn fast! In our college computer class we are comparing the 1.2Ghz T-Bird and the 1.5Ghz P4 and the T-Bird is outperforming it by a little bit. and the prices are for the Processor "BigPimpinNYC"The best place to go to get AMD and Pentium (as if you would want one) is pricewatch.com, they have all the street prices on everything! Peace Out!

Just want to say is intel tested there cpu the P3 and P4 the P3 beat the P4 =+).. just what u all to know that first..(u will know when u sign up for the intel new letter..) and the next thing when the f**k is celeron 2-3 coming out i want to overclock that baby =+).. ooooo yaaaaaaaaaaaaaa =+).. need more power hehe...

AMD Slashes Prices

one more thing.. what the f**k u all talking about the price is mad low here already in NYC.. like the p3 933 $500 and the amd is already like in the $200 area. and the celeron is $70-190.. if u all what to know how to buy a cpu get the one with most cache and mhz in it.. if NOT GET RAM f**k THE CPU GET A 516MB RAM PC-166-200 and there u go a super fast computer =+)

Hi I have a question about the AMD prices, exactly where can I go to purchase the processors at these prices. I tried a few places and the prices are still $1,000,000 for a 700 mhz processor.

AMD Slashes Prices

This is soo funny!All AMD needed was a little support, now they have enough cash to keep delveloping thier bigger and better chips. And AMD showing that they have enough mojo to lower thier prices, is truely c**ky!AMD T'Bird 1.2GHz ROCKS.....

By The Way... Here's The Main Reason Of Why I HATE Pentiums:!!!BUILT IN COOKIE INSIDE!!!Why The Hell Does Every Freaking Company Wants Personal User Information For? If They Want My Personal Information, They Better Pay Me A Good Amount Of Money For It, Each And Every Single Time It Is Being Used For Something, Darn Right. That's Why They Can Stick Their Built In Serial COokie Up You Know Where.

"AMD sucks" - Dumbasswhat the hell kinda system holds both pentium and AMD chipsets...f**khead...2nd grade panzyit only locks up because the rocks you got on your ctrl alt and delete buttons havent been unglued....dumbass...

LOLCeleries lick my ass no matter what number you throw next to the namethe Durons take them out (192k cache) vs what... 2k cache on the new celereys?roflol....dont make me laugh..."hacker child"...

AMD Slashes Prices

Correction to Anonymous just under Zion:Thunderbirds and PIII's have 256K full-speed on-die L2 Cache.Durons have 64K Full-speed on-die L2 Cache.Celerons have 128K Full-speed on-die L2 Cache.Celerons whole problem is that its a severely crippled Pentium 2 core.Celeron Analogy: Take a Marathon runner, and break his leg. Now make him go run a marathon. Sure, he may finish, but 1) Hes not gonna look pretty doing it, and 2) Hes certainly not gonna break any speed records.Conclusion: Celerons suck.-Kao
