Digitimes reports that on October 23rd, AMD will slash prices on Socket S1 Turion 64 X2 and S1/754 Sempron CPU's. Price cuts will be from 16-35%. The mobile price cuts would follow a series of desktop price cuts on the 24th of this month. Digitimes says not to expect any more price cuts for the desktop in October.

The planned price cuts for AMD notebook CPUs on October 23 only involves the single-core Socket 754 versions that supports DDR modules, whereas prices for the Socket AM2 and Socket S1 CPU lineups that support DDR2 will remain unchanged, the sources noted. The move is aimed to help clear out AMD's DDR-supporting products, the sources said.
