AMD plans to cut some of its APU prices at the end of April to welcome its next-generation Richland APUs, set for launch in early June, according to sources from PC players. Prices of AMD's APUs including A8-5600K, FX-8320, FX-6300 and FX-4300 will see 8-15% drops and the CPU maker will also start shipping its A4-4000 in mid-April for sales in mid-May priced at US$40.
However, AMD has declined to comment about unannounced products. With Intel also planning to release its next-generation processors in early June, AMD is hoping the new APUs will help it regain momentum and push its desktop market share back to above 20%, the sources said. AMD will only release several high-end Richland-based APUs including the A10-6800K and A8-6600K, initially.
