AMD Athlon Price Cut Expected Soon!

AMD Monday will slash prices by as much as 30 percent on its Athlon 64 X2 dual-core microprocessor series, according to a system builder with a long-standing business relationship with the chip giant.

The system builder, who preferred to remain anonymous, said manufacturer prices for the top-of-the-line Athlon 64 X2 6000+ would drop from $241-per-unit to about $170. The price of an Athlon 64 X2 4000+ would be cut from about $90 to $69, he said.

AMD would not comment on price cuts for its Athlon line.

“AMD does not comment on rumors or speculation,” the company said in a statement.

Fry’s Electronics July 2 listed the Athlon 64 X2 6000+ at $169.99 on its Web site. That listing represented an at-cost offering of the chip ahead of the scheduled July 9 price cut, according to the system builder.

Fry’s had removed the $169.99 listing as of July 5, when the retailer listed the Athlon 64 X2 6000+ at $229.99. That particular chip was tagged by Fry’s as “Sold Out.”
