AMD cuts prices, ships 1.1 GHz Athlon

Advanced Micro Devices dropped prices on Athlon and Duron processors today by 28 to 44 percent in preparation for the arrival on the street, August 28, of its 1.1 GHz Athlon. These cuts occur close to the anniversary of the Athlon, the processor credited with much of AMD’s revival this year. AMD could reportedly see a profit this years, the first since 1995. Though the situation will not last for more than a few weeks, the price for the 1.13 GHz and the 1 GHz Pentium III are both listed as $990.
