Intel/AMD, at war again

July will be another month of price wars for Intel and AMD (after a very bumpy April). Both announced that they would shoot prices down once again in July trying to grab a larger market share (for AMD) or trying to asphyxiate the competition (for Intel). AMD will start at the beginning of the month. Intel will follow in the last week of July.

In this context, you should notice that analysts doubt that DRAM prices will grow again. It seems that they expect NAND Flash components to recover during Summer, but Vista -which was expected to help sales- does not appear to have a significant impact on DRAM (and graphics card) sales.
