AMD plans to lower the unit prices for Socket 754 Sempron processors in early May, with the maximum cut being 15%. The price reduction for the entry-level K8-compatible CPUs will help AMD with its plan to phase out its Socket-A processors by the end of the third quarter but will continue producing K7 processors as customers have requested it do so. Prices for AMD’s Athlon 64 lineup will remain unchanged from levels set earlier this year.
