On 24th July, Athlon 64 X2 would drop 35% to 50% to against Conroe, while Athlon 64 would drop 20% to 30% to against Pentium D. To save the low level market, Sempron would also drop 10% to 15%, similar to the drop of Intel Celeron.


The day after Conroe, HALF OFF FX-62!

Still in light of a $316 E6600, 75% off is in order.


Well I don't think Core 2 will dent sales if they do that. OEMs will still make the same amount of systems. I don't think FX or Opteron are included.

Sound like a good idea for Amd and dual socket cpu.

Nice!

Anyone know if the Pentium D price drop includes the 8xx and 9xx series?

Well regardless of the price drops I'm still going to get the best dual core CPU I can buy with my original budget of $500 that I've already set aside.
June 12, 2006 4:01:45 PM

I think thats not the best approach.
By buying a hardly slower CPU for less money you could have a nice wad of dollars to use for other components, like RAID 0, faster GPU, better case or whatever.
Best CPU for you 500$ would be the Core 2 Duo E6700 at 530$, which would mean a -30$ to you budget. The Core 2 Duo E6600, only 316$ and just a bit slower would mean that you would have an extra 184$ for the rest of your system (or an additional E6300 *lol*).

Just wanted to add my 0.02$

If I had a crystal ball, I'd look ahead and see how these three tweak out. I can't really see spending more than about $300 on a CPU in light of all the recent price cuts.

The only parts I need to buy for my new PC are the CPU, motherboard, RAM, and GPU.

If you really want to know the budget I allocated to each component then here you go:

CPU...................$500
Motherboard.......$250
RAM...................$300
GPU...................$400 (I don't really play that many games. 3 Titles a year?)

Total Budget.......$1450

That money can be moved around from component to component. The PC is not strickly for gaming, I need a powerful CPU for other things.

Hopefully the Dell 2407FPW LCD monitor will be on sale for around $750, the current price of $950 is a bit steep. But it is not a necessary purchase, my 19" Planar PX190 is doing just fine.
June 12, 2006 8:35:18 PM

Awesome News!

I was checking with my Wholesale Distributor and the prices seem to all be in effect.

This price drop was hard and fast.

Say what you will about P4 D's lack of perfomance compared with x2, people CAN get a dual core Intel processor for close to a hundred clams. AMD can't offer that. Their cheapest dual core, although faster than a 920-940, is still going to be 50% more expensive, and that's the bottom line. It's already been said in the forums 500 times, BUT most of AMD's gain in market share began in ~2001 when they were much cheaper than Intel. Now that's history, and although they have proven themselves(performance-wise), people still rememeber AMD as the better bang/buck. Not the case anymore. They either need to undercut Intel prices(very likely impossible), or bring on K8L.....YESTERDAY!!!! Just look at all the 805D posts, in THGC alone. Then 920, and 930....They are O/Cing
bargoons. :wink:

So how does the fact that I allocated approximately $500 for a dual core CPU mean that I am either pro-AMD or pro-Intel? Conroe CPUs are within that price range too.

Sorry, wasn't saying anything about you, just a general comment about pricing. And P4 prices
are dropping before Conroe releases. :wink:

I'm looking for passive cooling. I.E. heatsink only. No water cooling either.

E6700! Blows FX-62 away. The FX-62 will be about the same price.
The E6600 is better the Fx-62. It will sell the most.

It's abundantly clear that Conroe will be the fastest CPU in town when it hits in a few weeks' time. It pulverises all present CPUs in the majority of CPU-based benchmarks...
There's no real need for a summary. The benchmarks tell all. Intel's Conroe simply outmuscles every currently available CPU. Would you buy an AMD Athlon 64 FX-62 now? AMD must be thinking that K8-L can't come soon enough...
Were you one of the Conroe doubters? Still not convinced? Either way, how do you think AMD is going to respond?
June 13, 2006 1:35:06 AM

The E6600 is just f'n excellent, for even the hard core gamers and general PC builders in general... [/drools]

i know thats what im shooting for, and with air cooling you can easly o/c it to the 2.6 if not more :)  (rumor has it they oc to 1ghz on freaking air cooling stock voltage, i thinks we may see peeps with 5ghz PCs easy after July :o ) thats what im getting

E6600 2.40GHz 4mb $316 :D  (i thought it woul be $500 so im not 2 worried i still hope that 1500 will be anough for a high end DX10 System..i just want to know the price of Vista Ultimate (because its the only version next to busniess that supports dual core)
June 13, 2006 12:39:46 PM

FX series wont get any cheaper, never.
No one buys them anyways so theres no reason to lower their prices =)

I just picked up a PAIR of Dell fp2405s for $550 (Canadian) each, brand new from Dell, 3 year warranty, Factory sealed :) 

Almost toooo much monitor.. get a bit of whiplash going from screen to screen.... :)

No argument over that, but I argue for Joe Blow who has to get a decent CPU fan to reduce the noise. Every P4-D media center I've "heard" in person is slightly too loud for my tastes (excluding D805 which I haven't seen in action).

The X2 is simply faster and quieter for an extra hundred or two. And while I'm at it, after using Windows Media Center Edition why go back to vanilla XP?
June 13, 2006 3:21:42 PM

What is AMD on? The FX is good, but two and a half time the price of a 5000+ for twice the cache and unlocked multiplyer? That is just plain stupid. :roll:

I'm getting much better performance at half the price with a E6700.

Intel price cuts conceal money making scheme
Quote:
Except that it actually may not be cutting average prices at all. Remember, this is about flat pricing, and what you and I pay is probably a lot more than what Dell pays. One look at a price sheet versus a Dell circular shows that you can't make a box that cheaply, or inexpensively, if you wanted to. Anyone want to bet that Dell paid less than half of what you can get that same CPU for?

So, with the introduction of the flat pricing model it actually raised the numbers on the largest of their customers while lowering it for less than half the buyers. When the sneaky maths is summed up, it's probable Intel will end up making more money than it did before the price cuts.

Lol, Intel may have raised Dell's prices with their flat rates, and end up making more profit. Dell goes AMD. Nice though, everybody gets the same price. Retail will just get some more markups.

I like to use larger monitors and arrays of monitors, but they have to be at the correct distance and height. Lower is better for me. I'm using a 20" 1600x1200 for the gameing rig and love it. The video editing setup is 2x19" 1280x1024 and I'd consider a third if I had the space and if it didn't degrade video performance. Multiple monitors are a great productivity aid for programming, photo editing, etc.

I second that. My monitor is about 18" in front of me, and i like CRT, I wish i could get an 18" CRT. My wife's is set up EXACTLY like mine, but 19" monitor, me no like. :) 

PS. Our TV is a 61" rear projection(4:3) and i like having to look all over. Guess i'm used to it after 7 years, but i got a lot of headaches when we first got it. :?

For some reason none of the 2x1024mb cache X2's get slashing. I think none of them will be selling either.

yah i sit like 1 maybe 2 feet away from my monitor so a 19" would require me to turn my head to see a corner. on the other hand i have a 17" wide on my laptop its actually very pleasing. not too large not too small maybe a 19" wide would be better.
