    well, this article speaks specifically to the cut on the 6000. maybe old news for some..new news for me. looks like they may have dropped a few days early.

    newegg offers the 4400 off and on for under $200. You just have to be lucky. The chips are OOP so supply is slim.

    That's why AM2 is cheaper. Supply.

    yes. and the fact that single core owners dont want to switch boards, ole trick to make mula in the med-long run

    Yeah, AMD is supposed to have a huge cut on the 3000+, and all of their other processors are being cut as well starting first-second week in April. Unfortunately, I dont think that Intel will follow as they are alone in the spotlight now, but lets see what happens when those prices come down!

    Good Lord! They must be bleeding money. Not good for the long term financial outlook of the company.

    Yes, it is not a good outlook for AMD. And that is a sad thing for us as when AMD goes out of the picture, Intel will no longer have competition and they can set their CPU prices to whatever they want . Right now it does not look like AMD has anything to fight with. Their Socket 'F' to set two AMD Cpu's to work in Quad has bombed as the cost is high, power requirements are astronomical, and the performance is equivelant to Intels Quad processors which are highly overclockable and running at a fraction of the power requirement. Unless AMD slips something out of their sleeve, their future will be over within a year. This will be horrendous as without competition, there is nothing to regulate price, quality, or the push for advancement in technology. Computer technology has advanced to a tremendous level over the last 4 years. This is solely on competition with one manufacturer trying to outshine the other. With that factor out of the equation, technological advancement will slow down. AMD has to get their s**t together, forget about their aging core, and work on new technology.
