Barton has 512KB of L2 cache
Sempron has 256KB or L2 cache
Sempron works on fewer motherboards then XP processor. Also, some
motherboards need to flashed with a new BIOS before they will recognize the
All problems have a simple solution! The more complex the solution, the
more ludicrous the analogy!
Don't get your panties in a bunch ... the Sempron is to X64 like the Celeron
is to the Pentium
I would much rather have a Sempron as you can OC them very nicely. As Wes
pointed out though that maybe your best bang for the buck is a XP 2500
Barton right now .. or one of the other less expensive XP's
I helped my friend set up a machine with a Smepron .. it's nice and
nocompalints .. I have three machines with AMD XP's, another machine has a
Celeron and the other with an A64.
I would like to say, i came late to socket A, and sempron
rules(considering the cost to power ratio)
I got a 2600+ overclocked to a 2800+, stable, default voltage on crapy
cheap gigabyte motherboard.
As far as i'm concerned if you can handle taking the heat for having a
old system and no "64" on your chip, go socket a, the nf-7(board of
legends) is soooo cheap compared to good 939 boards, along with the ol
skool xp-m 2500 and you've got the performance of a AMD Hammer system.
Oh i calculated, that AMD Hammer technology is 30% faster at the same
clock speed than the old XP tech, is that about right?
