AMD’s Turion 64 X2 product lineup will receive 16% price cuts with the exception of the upper end Turion 64 X2 TL-60. Instead the $337 Turion 64 X2 TL-60 will receive a more drastic 26% price cut in time for the new Turion 64 X2 TL-64. A new single-core Turion 64 MK-36 for Socket S1 is expected to arrive in time for the July 24th 2006 pricing structure. There’s no word on the clock speed and cache configuration of the Turion 64 MK-36 though.

"Will Athlon 64 price cuts go deeper than expected?"

The price list also shows 65W "Energy Efficient" Athlon 64 X2 flavors sitting $28.75 above their regular counterparts on average, slightly lower than today's average of $33.2. As for the vanilla single-core Athlon 64 and Sempron lineups, the price list suggests they will both be brought under the $100 mark—except for the Athlon 64 3800+, which will apparently stick out at $109.



Nice to know that you can buy a cheap X2-3800 for $149. :wink:

Or an even better E6300 when it comes out at the end of the month!

Yup, AMD fanboys are going through some depressing times. :lol: Yeah, it's like the great depression of 1929. The bottom is falling out for some Fanboys. Jumping out building windows is next.

I hear that since Core 2 benchmarks were first released sales of Emo records and razorblades have skyrocketed, particularly in Sunnyvale, CA

The company could largely avoid direct confrontation with Intel's newcomer for a while


lol - sounds like a military general from WW1.

"We're 'straightening the front line' " = we're retreating as fast as we can

"We will confront the enemy on our own terms" = we're running away

"We will avoid direct confrontation" = actually we're really scared that we'll get hurt if we meet them

Joking asied though, the prospect of cheaper X2 CPUs is really welcome. I just wish the position on 939 CPUs would become clearer.

Jumping out of Windows Into what? Linux?Sounds good to me. I like linux a lot, and don't care much for Windows...other than for gaming.

Well, AMD can cut the prices all they want. It still doesn't cut Intels better performance.
