Clearing out Llano inventory


According to a report over at Digitimes, citing sources close to motherboard manufacturers, AMD is cutting prices on some of its Llano FM1 socket A-series APUs.

The price cut will include two socket FM1 based A-series APUs and kicks off with a 2.5GHz clocked dual-core A4-3300 that will drop from US $46 down to US $30. The second faster, 2.7GHz clocked dual-core A4-3400 will drop from US $48 down to US $35.

Last but not least, the new A4-5300 Trinity based socket FM2 dual-core APU clocked at 3.4GHz with 3.6GHz Turbo. According to the report, AMD plans to drop the price down from US $53 to US $30. This price cut is planned to come into effect three months from now, in order to directly compete with Intel Pentium CPUs.

It sounds like AMD is preparing for quite an aggressive transition to Trinity.
