AMD has cut prices on its high-end dual-core desktop processors after the launch of Intel’s quad-core Core 2 Extreme QX6800. AMD also announced its new restructuring plans to compensate for reduced quarterly revenue today. The price cuts affect AMD Athlon 64 X2 for single processor desktops and Athlon 64 FX Quad FX processors. Quad FX Athlon 64 FX-74 and FX-72 processors prices drop to $799 and $599 from $999 and $799 respectively. AMD sells the Athlon 64 FX-70-series in pairs for its Quad FX enthusiast’s dual processor platform. AMD no longer lists the Athlon 64 FX70, the lowest priced pair of Quad FX processors, in its price list.
