    I am not ure how much time will it take for prices to reduce in India ( maybe someone will like to enlighten us here ) , but even so the price cut is huge.

    This has not been confirmed by amd, so its not certain, but many would say this was due, so you can take this to be pretty possible.

    need not necessarily mean profit cuts...

    could also be becoz of manufacturing in India beginning...

    It says upto 50% and not 50%. Only the highest models like the X2 4800+ will have such aggressive price cuts. The more affordable X2 3800+ won't have more than 20-30% discount.

    E6100 = 184$
    E6400 = 224$
    btw ppl, conroe has beaten amd in every benchmark comprehensively, so amd will have no chance except a price cut.

    It won't be all smooth sailing for Conroe for atleast the first year. Intel has to deal with low availability and huge demand for Conroe, a massive stockpile of old processors, overpriced Conroe mobo's, huge base of existing socket 939 mobo's.
    Plus gamers won't buy Conroe unless they get SLI/Crossfire on their Conroe rig which won't happen unless nVidia/ATI make a Conroe compatible chipset.

    stole the words out of my keyboard. if one reads the benchmarks one will see that amd's new am2 platform uses ddr2 ram. now the speed of the ram depends on the clock speed of the cpu. the higher the better. so the high end amd cpus do provide a performance gain but the lower end ones provide a performance depriciate. plus conroe has beaten amd in almost all the benchmarks. so amd has no other option except to reduce prices to increase sales. lets wait till conroe releases. what if intel also does the same thing huh? amd will be in a fix.

    conroe does have sli and crossfire chipset in the pipeline ..

    nvidia is launching nforce 590 sli and 570 sli .. also ati is working on rd600 crossfire chipset ..which i think will be called ati crossfire 3200 intel edition . .. guess what .. DFI is going to launch two mobo based on these chipsets for intel conroe which are lanparty favour .. now that's great news.. specifically the one with ati chipset .. i am sure that board will create a new overclocking record with conroe ..
