This week we see more discounts on AMD's Athlon-C (266MHz FSB) line of processors. The 1.33GHz fell $20 while 1.2GHz and 1.13GHz parts fell $37 and $23, respectively. The 1.0GHz model also showed a decent $13 price drop this week. We should note that the new Athlon-C processors require a motherboard capable or handling the 266MHz FSB. Check out the Memory and Motherboard Price Guide for more information and read our latest comparison to find out what chipset you'll want to pair up with your new CPU.

The high end Athlon-B (200MHz FSB) processors also saw some steep price reductions this week. The 1.3GHz model fell $39, putting it at a mere $172. The 1.2GHz part showed a $34 price cut as well. Although these faster Athlons have come down significantly in price, we still recommend the 1.0GHz part as is offers similar performance to it's brothers at a lower price and also generates less heat. The mid to low end Thunderbirds showed little change in price this week. You should expect to see further price drops among Athlon CPUs after the 1.4GHz Thunderbird makes its debut next month.

The first workstation class Athlon CPUs will make their debut next month as well, as soon as they are available we will add them to the Price Guide.

AMD's Slot A Athlons also showed a downward trend in price this week. The 950MHz and 850MHz parts can now be found for $170 and $99, respectively. Those looking to upgrade an older Athlon system need only upgrade their motherboard's BIOS is order to support these higher clocked Athlons.

The Duron line of processors also showed some significant price cuts this week. The latest Duron, the 900MHz model, fell another $17 this week, putting it at $70. The 850MHz part dropped $14 as well and can be found for $57. For those who like to overclock, the Duron 750MHz can now be found for an astonishingly low price of $37.
