With the recent drop in Celeron prices it was very logically to expect AMD to cut the prices of AMD Athlon XP microprocessors. Finally, it happened and AMD’s K7 processors’ prices were slashed down a month after other chips in AMD’s family became even more affordable.

The correction in prices is very minor and measures by only 2% – 10%. It means that AMD adjusts the pricing of its Athlon XP chips according to Intel Celeron pricing.

As you see, only the very high-end AMD Athlon XP chips are offered at comparable pricing with Intel Pentium 4 processors, even though AMD CPUs are priced tangibly lower. In a little bit more than three weeks time the world will see AMD Athlon 64 and Athlon 64 FX offering extreme “not rated” speed and priced at $400 - $700 tremendously improving AMD’s average selling prices and moving even the high-speed Athlon XP chips down to fight mainstream Pentium 4 and entry-level Celeron microprocessors.
