AMD will keep their prices competitive. It would make no fiscal sense to increase their prices just because the chip is faster. They will price their chips to make people buy them, not have their potential customers go to Intel.

Not everyone cares if X chip beats Y chip by 20%. Most people care about how much the chip is and how much the entire platform will cost. Not everyone builds their own computer.

Think about that mate, if Intel prices fell just because Bulldozer owned..

Wouldn't that mean that the Intel Consumers would have no reason to go over to AMD?? If I remember correctly, AMD IS losing the fight...

Or do I have that all wrong?

Potential customer go to Intel? You mean Stay with Intel?

Price Vs Performance, bottom line...

I'm really wanting to see Intel drop those prices SOON, can't wait to pay $150 for an i5-750/760 again, whoosh!
I can say the prices are dropping now but you have to keep a close eye out for those deals. I just bought a brand new Gigabyte P55 UD3R for $56 and my 870 for $200 (was a one-day in-store sale only) @ MicroCenter Sometimes, MicroCenter have an overstock of P55 mobos and without warning, they would lower the cost drastically (just look for the red price tag @ MC if you live near one). I LIKE MICROCENTER

Where did I say they wouldn't be priced competitively? If they beat out intel performance wise they will price accordingly. I'm not saying they are going to do major price hikes but they aren't going to be playing second fiddle when it comes to pricing if that is how bulldozer turns out.

All I'm saying is if bulldozer were to absolutely beat out sandy bridge there would likely be some sort of price drop, when two lines of products are neck and neck in hardware price wars always start.

IF bulldozer is faster i highly doubt Intel would drop their prices for 3 reasons
#1 AMD has to show OCing potential for any OCer here to switch over, and AMD sucks at OCing right now I don't see that changing. Especially for the Xtreme guys, for instance my friend just went subzero with an AMD platform 6 core, and at 6ghz it was slower than his 2600K at 5.1ghz.
#2 Intel's partners aren't going to change to AMD b/c of the performance of one or two lines, they are bound by contracts. Plus the average person doesn't really know which models are faster, your normal computer sales guy wont really know either.

#3 those left that care about performance such as those that build computers and don't OC would be the only group i potentially see as changing sides, and they are a small market compared to the main market.

I don't know what will happen to prices in the near future. All I know is that I want an i7-970 for under $300. NAO!
