AMD isn't about to concede an inch of its market share to Intel, not without an aggressive fight, anyway. Citing "sources from motherboard players," DigiTimes reports AMD has taken a hatchet to about 20 desktop processors in an attempt to defend against competition from its rival.
Some of the more enticing price cuts include AMD's quad-core Athlon II X4 640 chip, which was dropped from $122 to $99, the dual-core Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition, which slid from $105 to $93, and the quad-core Phenom II X4 955 and 965, both of which were cut by $26 to $145 and $165, respectively.
AMD now has a boat load of modern processors at sub-$100 price points, with many of its higher-end chips still only priced at under $200.
