AMD drops desktop processor prices

AMD drops desktop processor prices by 47% | TG Daily: "As expected, AMD rings in the next round of the processor price battle with Intel. In an effort to remain competitive, the company today slashed the prices of all desktop processors. In the strategically important field of socket AM2 CPUs, the drop averaged 47% - which may not be enough to retain overall price/performance leadership, according to TG Daily findings."

They can't afford to let Intel (re)build any inertia in the market.
