Having a ‘value oriented’ line of chips that is only separated from the flagship Socket AM2 lineup by clock speed and cache has thus allowed the single core Sempron to sit at the dual core AM2 Athlon64 table without causing too much of a disruption. The AMD Sempron processor has received little press, but that hasn’t stopped it from snagging a large portion of the mainstream market, first in socket flavours and most recently in socket AM2. The AMD Sempron processor has received little press, but that hasn’t stopped it from snagging a large portion of the mainstream market. The new AM2 retention frame will be compatible with only one type of existing K8 heatsink, but we’ll get into this in just a moment. There are plenty of Socket AM2 compatible chipsets and motherboards on the market, so now has never been a better time to upgrade if that is in the cards for you. Pure 32 bit Benchmarks: Enter the Sempron processor.

AMD Sempron + / 2 GHz processor Overview – CNET

Enter the Sempron processor. The AMD Sempron processor has received little press, but that hasn’t stopped it from snagging a large portion of the mainstream market, first in socket flavours and most recently in socket AM2. Other component upgrades may also be necessary if you’re upgrading an existing PC, seeing as the socket AM2 heatsink retention frame has also evolved significant from the two-post socket retention frame so many high end copper K8 heatsinks are built for.

It was popular because it was powerful and cheap, and this created a situation where it stole a bit of thunder from the higher end Athlon and AthlonXP processors.

Having a ‘value oriented’ line of chips that is only separated from the flagship Socket AM2 lineup by clock speed and cache has thus allowed the single core Sempron to sit at the dual core AM2 Athlon64 table without causing too much of a disruption.

Get your cup of coffee ready, and let’s begin The reason for its quick success is largely due to semrpon well the Sempron matches up against Intel’s Celeron processor. Beginners Guides Cases and Access.

AMD’s previous family of value-oriented processors, the Duron, enjoyed quite a bit of success in its day. The new AM2 retention frame will be compatible with only one type of existing K8 heatsink, but we’ll get into this in just a moment.

AMD Sempron + GHz Socket AM2 Processor Review –

About Us Employment Privacy Policy. The AMD Sempron processor has received little press, but that hasn’t stopped it from snagging a large semmpron of the mainstream market.

Well perhaps “matches up” is not the correct word to use, AMD’s Sempron processor runs circles around the wheezy little Celeron D!

First though, it’s procfssor to take a closer look at what the 2.

That is half the amount of on-core cache memory of the Athlon64, and as we’ve seen in previous processor reviews L2 cache size will play a key role in overall performance. AMD eventually phased out the socket A Duron processor, leaving a great wide hole in the bargan basement isle of its product lineup.
