America Attacked
Even though there is no category for the recent tragic, I would like to express my sympathy and condolences to the injured people and the families that have lost loved ones.

AMD cuts CPU prices again
AMD has cut its prices. It updated its official processor price list on 20 August, and yesterday it did so again.

The latest prices more closely match what AMD's chips are actually being sold for, so perhaps they shouldn't be regarded as a cut at all. After we ran our last item on AMD's official prices, numerous Register readers wrote in to tell us they could but AMD CPUs far below the listed prices.

In today's official changes, the 1.4GHz Athlon fell from $253 to $130, a fall of 49 per cent. The 1.3GHz part fell from $230 to $125, down 46 per cent. The 1.2GHz chip was down 40 per cent, from $199 to $120. The 1.1GHz Athlon dropped from $179 to $115, a fall fo 36 per cent, and the 1.0GHz chip fell from $160 to $115, down 28 per cent.

Intel to cut P4 prices
Intel will cut its Pentium 4 prices by up to 55 per cent on Sunday, just ahead of the launch of 1.9GHz and 2GHz versions of the same processor.

The chip giant has already confirmed the arrival of the 2GHz P4, which will be officially rolled out at Intel's Developer Forum on Monday. Interestingly, the company will also be showing off the first Mobile Pentium 4, we hear.
