    I'm pretty sure the news 'trickled' out in early June; well, that's when it blew my way.
    Shopping time for me.

    **edit: no mention of the FX family?

    Thats good news - we consumers seem to be the beneficiary of the Intel/AMD rivalry. If Intel do what people say they will do on the 22nd then I might be able to afford an Intel Quad processor for my new rig I'm researching

    Its funny though, how we do not seem to get similar price competition with graphics products

    That makes AMD look like quite good choices ATM.

    I need an upgrade for Crisis :(

    The good news: Price wars bring lower prices, consumers save money *yay*!

    The Bad news: If the companies competing in a price war aren't evenly matched, then it'll hurt one company more than the other, possibly driving them out of the market. Hopefully this doesn't hurt AMD financially too much. Because if it does, this short term gain would result in a long term loss (AMD leaving the market, Intel left with no competition, to stagnate).

    I think AMD are cutting prices to move a lot of inventory ahead of the new product releases next quarter. Real issue is whether prices for the new stuff will be higher. With both Intel and AMD using ever smaller dyes - they are producing silicon at much lower prices. Its about time consumers started to see a little benefit from that other than just faster products which has been the game so far.

    I'm all about price vs performance. It seems amd just bacame a deal, but I'll hold till the next intel cuts. a quad core for less than 300 is still a better deal all things considered if you're like me and think you could use the extra cores. But I have been planning to make my mom a new comp for christmas, so she may just be getting a amd. It seems that for the average user who doesn't game, prices are coming to a place where a little money gets more comp than the average net surfer and Word user could ever want.

    I like this price cut. I'm planning on building a system this summer that will be a drop-in upgrade to an AM2+ Barcelona, so being able to get a rather cheap AM2 CPU now will be nice.

    Maybe I have been under a rock lately.. but will AMD's next gen quad cores run on a AM2+ board? if so I may have good reason to upgrade my sisters old 3000+ 754 :)

    X2 6000+

    Im Thinking about X2 6000+. But I will probably wait for 89W version. Now are only 125W version everywhere.
    Intell will cut prices 22.7. Im curious hou this "proce war" will continue.

    (Sorry my bad english.)

    5600+ X2 2.8 @ 3.1 (can do more but air cooling with an mini typhoon 55c-60c)

    for the 6000+ chip not worth it (both OC to the same level)

    quad core should work on my motherboard as well
