AMD's new prices insanely dropped

Last response: in CPUs

Following Intel's trend, AMD drops the 3000+ radically, making it once more a price/performance choice, at a 44.7% drop.
The XP2400+ assumes the old XP2200+'s price, which is 100$, definitely a big drop and making it probably the sweet spot of the CPUs by AMD.
The 2.4 by Intel is also a sweet spot.

The 3.06GHZ is also quite less expensive, but the 2.8GHZ is the most interesting for now.
Glad to know even the best CPUs out there now are not at all 1000$ CDN anymore.

$91 for XP2400+! That's unbelievable!

nForce2 boards as low as $80!

If only high speed memory would come way down in price.

Reconsidering, if one just gives up a little off max performance using dual channel, cheap memory, and a lot of overclocking one can do pretty well for short money.

Wow, that's pretty good. Less than a hundred for a 2400.

Great, I just ordered a 2400+ for $108.00, and now it drops. That's ok I will enjoy it anyway.

108$ is still very cheap. A very high price/performance ratio in there. That's good news for me in the future, should I want to upgrade from my XP1600 KT266A setup without changing anything.

Yeah however the total price drop is still pretty much around what I found, and the prices are still not enough though, to match AMD's. However it puts many CPUs at the reach, which is very good.

Oddly enough the Epox boards, which in many ways are better than the Asus boards have been cheap all along.

See for yourself. Hop over to <A HREF="http://www.pricewatch.com" target="_new">Pricewatch.com</A> and do a search.

OK call it $80-85 but that's delivered price. For which you are generally looking at Leadtek, MSI, Soltek, EPoX and you might have to settle for MCP and 2 channel audio not MCP-T with 6.1 (not a problem if you already have a good sound card).

The Epox 8RDA is a decent overclocking board. Don't know about the others.
