Advanced Micro Devices today slashed the prices on almost all its microprocessors for mobile and server applications. The reduction is pretty significant – up to one third – on some CPUs and pretty moderate on other chips. Below you may find tables that represent pricing comparison between competing Intel and AMD offerings. I intentionally included all microprocessors offered by the Sunnyvale, California-based chipmaker in order to show you the whole picture of today’s CPU market.

As you see, higher-end AMD Athlon XP processors are priced lower compared to Intel Pentium 4 CPUs, whereas lower-end models cost the same amount of money compared to Celeron chips. There is no surpises here, everything goes as expected and planned.

The situation in the server and workstation markets is a bit more complex for AMD because of the fact that Intel offers dozens of various chips for different segments. Even though AMD says it enjoys nice adoption of the Opteron processors by the market, competition from Intel's side is extremelly strong.

Recently Advanced Micro Devices unleashed quite a lot of new processors designed for applications with low power consumption what allows the company to fight with its competitor, at least, virtually. Currently I have no information about AMD's market share in mobile market, but I believe that it is either flat or very moderately lower compared to the figure last year. This seems to be a nice achievement given that Intel is very aggressive with its Centrino technology as well as other processors for notebooks and laptops.
