This week AMD doesn't surprise us with any more high end Athlon or Athlon-C processors. Check out the updated AMD Roadmap for more information on when new AMD processors will be released. Instead, we see some significant price drops in the high end Athlon segment. The 1.33GHz Athlon-C (266MHz FSB) dropped $54 putting it at $223. Other significant price drops came from the 1.13GHz processor which dropped $28, and 1.0GHz Athlon-C which dropped $22. For a high end solution we'd recommend the 1.2GHz Athlon-C as it offers similar performance to it's 1.33GHz brother, but does not generate as much heat and costs $21 less. 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 regular 100MHz DDR FSB (200MHz) Athlon line of processors also saw significant price drops this week. The 1.3GHz model dropped $60 putting it at $229. The 1.1GHz and 1.0GHz processors also dropped $24 and $13, respectively. Although the 1.3GHz and 1.2GHz models have come down in price significantly, we sill recommend the 1.0GHz model as it is offers similar performance to its brothers and is a much better deal at only $148.

AMD's "classic" Slot-A Athlons showed a downward trend in prices this week as well. The 1.0Ghz chip dropped $20 putting it at $289. The 900Mhz model also showed a $10 drop in price. Those looking to upgrade an older Athlon system need only upgrade their motherboard's BIOS is order to support these higher clocked Athlons.

There's a new Duron on the block this week: the Duron 900. Because this processor has just come to market, it is still rather expensive. We'd recommend buying the 800MHz model as it offers performance similar to the 900MHz part at nearly half the cost. Those interested in overclocking should look to the Duron 750MHz, which is a steal at only $46.
