Default Major AMD price cut coming soon

It is widely known that there are going to be cuts, and that they are going to be pretty big, but the Inquirer is offering some rough numbers in this article- I'm too busy to verify them today, but I'm sure in the next few days, there will be lists going around the web.

"CHIP MAKER AMD is to cut the price of many of its desktop processors on April 9th.

From that date the price of the firm's Athlon 64 X2 dual-core 6000+ will be chopped virtually in half. Also savagely sliced is the dual-core 5600+ - down 43 per cent. Other dual-core offerings are down by between 20 and 30 per cent.
Some Sempr0n prices will be down by between 37 and 49 per cent and FX 62 and 64s prices will be cut by 20 and 25 per cent respectively.
Weedy old single-core Athlons, the 4000, 3800 and 3500 will be cut by 9, 16 and 23 per cent respectively. Whether the price cuts will be passed on in full to consumers remains to be seen. "
