Jus an idea here, but AMD is dropping prices in an effort to MATCH Intel, not really beat it. And the AMD processors that will be competing with Intel will be matched in price, not necessarily in performance. For example, a $183 1.86GHz Intel E6300 which can OC to 2.94GHz on air would be hard for AMD to match.
