AMD Drops Prices For Phenom Chips
Intel's recent price cut on on select quad-core and dual-core processors left AMD with no alternative but to slash its prices as well.

AMD has yet to update its official price list, but the changes are already visible at e-tailers, with the usual price variations.
The company was quick to react to Intel's move, a clear sign that competition has now become fiercer than ever. Furthermore, the demand for high-tech products continues to go down worldwide, leaving no room for alternative marketing plans.
AMD is now fully aware that it can waste any time in delaying its decisions and the recent price cut goes to prove it: the two chips had been on the market for only two weeks.
