Talking AMD Announces 10/23 Pricing

This is a public service announcement, there will be no price cuts on October 23rd, 2006

Sorry to disappoint you AMD backers, but no price cuts.

DailyTech has received an updated price list for October 23rd, 2006 that shows AMD has no plans to reduce prices on its Athlon 64 and Sempron desktop product lineups anytime soon. Pricing on Athlon 64, Athlon 64 FX, Athlon 64 X2, Athlon 64 X2 EE and Sempron will stay the same well into 2007 which may disappoint users expecting a sub-$100 dual-core AMD offering in time for the holidays to compete with Intel's $95 Pentium D 805.

The upcoming July 24th, 2006 price cut is the only planned price cut for quite a while. There’s no word on other upcoming price cuts yet, though it wouldn’t be surprising to see AMD cut prices when Brisbane production ramps up. DailyTech has previously reported on AMD’s upcoming Socket AM2 motherboard forward compatibility with Socket AM3 CPUs, upcoming AMD K8L architecture, AMD’s June 2006 product roadmap and upcoming 65nm improvements too. AMD has also been aggressively discontinuing Socket 939 and 754 products including dual-core Athlon 64 X2 4200+ and 4600+ models.

Actually, the 5000+ is sure tempting to buy...282 as of the 24th...

Haha, yeah. Dirt is truely free, unless it's been claimed or something, but no one really goes that far to charge for dirt.

Well yeah, it's potting soil. They usually enhance it by adding nutrients and other things that normal dirt lacks.
