AMD: After seeing the reports of huge price drops last week, we see them in full effect in the UK! The whole AMD range has been slashed by huge amounts. We see drops with all the Athlons, the most being with the Athlon 950Mhz dropping by ?41.12. The Athlon's are now more expensive than their Thunderbird counterparts, as the Thunderbirds had the biggest price cut. With the TB 1GHz dropping by a staggering ?284.34 and with the TB 950Mhz not far behind. At that price, the TB 1GHz is almost an amazing 50% less than the Intel P3 1GHz chip! Wow.
Intel: After seeing some large price drops last time with Intel, the prices have stayed pretty much the same, with several going back up slightly. I think it's time for Intel to put in some price drops if they are to compete with AMD.
Video Cards: Most of the GeForce2 cards didn't change at all, the only one which made a significant drop was the Creative Labs Annihilator 2, dropping under the ?200-mark at ?186.83. The GeForce card which plummeted in price, by ?56.35 to ?170.38 was the Asus V6600 Pure 64Mb SDR. There wasn't much change with the Voodoo cards, except for the V5 5500 64Mb AGP dipping below the ?200-mark. The same with the ATi cards, again with the ATi Rage Fury MAXX 64Mb still selling at a bargin price of ?85.14 inc VAT from here. We also see the introduction of the ATi Radeon cards (finally) with the 32Mb DDR comming in at a sub-?200-mark and the 64Mb comming in at GeForce2 GTS prices at ?258.50.
