AMD updates prices of its processors
AMD (Advanced Micro Devices) has totally updated the prices of most of their microprocessor products for the Personal Computer platform. Most of the times, such a radical change in prices points to launch of new range of processors from the company. The most visible change from the AMD is apparent in their redesigned processor for notebooks, the Turion, as well as the Sempron and Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core.
Some of the biggest cuts in prices are in the top-of-the-range Model 40s which sees price reduction by almost 25%. The ML 40 drops to $263 and the recently-introduced MT-40 to $268. The other models including 37, 34, and 32 models also see cuts of 16 per cent. More price cuts are offered on models like ML-28 and MT-28.
The company has also brought in another processor in the form of mid-range 64-bit Sempron – the 3200+ (64-bit enabled). This processor is priced at a modest $104. Some other Semprons see cuts ranging from a 10 per cent reduction in the top-of-the-range 3400+ (64-bit enabled), down from $134 to $120. The 2800+ (64-bit enabled) processor sees a price reduction of 5% from $78 to $74.
All of these prices are of course applicable on the 1,000 unit direct orders.
