AMD is expected to drop prices of some of its older processors.
According to a report published by Digitimes, AMD will reduce the tray price of the A4-3300 from $46 to 30, as well as the A4-3400 from $48 to $35.
The more recent FM2-based A4-5300 will reportedly drop from $53 to $30 in Q1 2013 to compete against Intel's Pentium chips. Price appears to be AMD's main leverage to defend itself against Intel in what is a toughening CPU market.
Following Intel's sobering earnings result announced yesterday, AMD will be releasing its numbers on Thursday. According to rumors, AMD will once again be cutting costs.
