Excess Supply To Push PC Prices Down

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 9:37 am

It should be a jolly Christmas for PC buyers, because an excess of chips will likely lead to discounts, according to analysts.

An excess supply of Intel processors purchased this summer, combined with ambitions at Advanced Micro Devices to increase its market share, could lead to price cuts of as much as 10 percent on computers over the next three months.

“Where the inventory glut is more likely to play a role is in the mid-to-high-end space, where manufacturers have a little more wiggle room to drop prices and simply take a reduction in profit margin rather than a loss in the value space”.
