In addition to the new chips, AMD today also implemented new price cuts, further slashing the prices of its Athlon chips. The new chips and price cuts are most likely the final product releases and price cuts to take place before

Each AMD product line received at least one new chip today. AMD released chips for its Athlon X2, Athlon and Sempron product lines.
For its Athlon X2 line, AMD released
the Athlon X2 BE-2400 chip
, which operates at 2.3 GHz and 45 Watts. According to AMD guidance, the product is priced at $104 in quantities of 1,000. Previously, the fastest AMD processor with the BE moniker was the 2350, which is priced at $96 in quantities of 1,000.
AMD also implemented a flurry of price cuts to its Athlon X2 brand. Eight additional price cuts were put into action today, all on the company's 65nm dual-core offerings. There are no

In today's silent-launch, AMD also released two new Athlon models. The first, the AMD Athlon LE-1620 runs at 2.4GHz and comes for $53. Like all of the other processor models released today, it also has a 45 Watt TDP rating.

AMD's Semron line also received a face lift with the release of three new processors, the LE-1250, LE-1200 and LE-1100. The chips operate at 2.2GHz, 2.1GHz, and 1.9GHz respectively.
