THE AMD "instant rebates" apply on certain Sempr0ns, Athl0ns and Opter0ns between the 4th of December to the 31st of December; the 8th of December to the 31st of December; and to the 31st of December respectively.

Prices below are for boxed versions. These are channel prices without local tax rates.

Interestingly, these "instant rebates" for the Opteron have been available since mid October.

The 754 pin S3000+ will cost $44 from $50, the S3200+ AM2 will cost $56 from $66 and fall to $51 on the 22nd of January 2007.

Other AM2 chips affected are the 3800+ down to $138 from $152, the X2 4200+ and EE down from $186 to $173 and the X2 4600+ down to $215 from $240.

The X2 5000+ drops from $300 to $285, along with the EE version, while X2 5200+ drop from $403 to $296.

As far as the Opterons go, it is the 939 versions that get their instant rebate.

The 144 drops by $8, the 146 by $12, the 148 by $24, the 150 by $19, the 152 by $9, the 154 by $37, the 165 by $11, the 170 by $17, the 175 by $26, the 180 by $32 and the 185 by $21.

According to recent roadmaps seen by the INQUIRER, Intel is keeping its prices steady, underlining problems of both allocation and process switching for AMD. µ
