Because its more profitable to use those resources making A64 X2s.

since the X2 4200+ is $160ish...
so 2 of them.. in the form of a 2.2 ghz quad K10... can possibly be $320ish.. hmmmm...

oh heck.. a dual core K10 would be a steal at $200.. i can't imagine that they would charge a huge premium over a K8 dual core at the same ghz

Companies like AMD are quite good when it comes to pricing. AMD didn't lower their prices for the customers, they did it to maximize their profit. They know that with these prices they can stay more competitive with intel and convince some people to upgrade who normally would not. I love it when price drops like this happen: its a win-win situation for both the company and the buyers.




This only benefits the customers, this does not benefit AMD in the short term, they are losing money every time they slash prices on the CPU's. The only way AMD benefits is by having more people buy there CPU's & increasing there overall market share.

Now, I wonder how much there new Native Quad's & Dual Cores coming in Q3 2007 are going to be priced at? I hope not too expensive like Intel's price molestations of there Core 2 Duo's.

Per CPU they gain less money, but overall due to more sales they gain more money. Thats what I was saying.

Well they could produce, say, 1,000 AXP 3200+'s a year, I'm sure they make millions of A64's per year (As easy as they should be to produce and what not...All you've got to do is program a computer to do it.) AMD is more of a 'We need to cut the prices back so that more consumers will buy our CPU's and more people will mean more profits' Intel is 'We need to create the fastest CPU possible, but we can't have it that low in price, or we'll loose money' In my opinion with AMD you get more bang for your buck, with Intel, you get more bang. AMD will definitely have something to battle that Intel chip, and it'll be more...Uhm...less expensive, but well worth every penny.

well, AMD doesnt 'lose' money with price drops, they just dont gain as much as they would with the higher price.
put it this way..
if it costed $45 to make a x2 3800 and they sell them at 300 each (like when i bought mine /dry.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="<_<" border="0" alt="dry.gif" /> )
that will be a $255 profit. (all prices are just expamle)
now, they drop the price down to about $130 like it is now.. thast still a $85 profit.
see, they dont 'lose' money, then just dont gain as much.

I'm stickin' with AMD for now until something drastic happens. This just made my day.

Really, AMD does benefit from the price cuts. AMD sells more CPUs, which evens out the lower prices in comparison to the higher ones.
