Unit sales of AMD Athlon 64 processors are expected to grow 50% sequentially in the second half of this year. Improved yield rates for K8 processors and AMD’s recent price cuts, about 20% on average, for the Athlon 64 processor lineup, are two key factors driving second-half sales. Sales of K8 processors started gaining momentum in July and should continue to expand at a rapid pace in August, following the July 26 price cuts.
