Hello so can someone explain to me what the Sempron is? what is the diff
between this and say a Barton XP?


Re: sempron?

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
Sempron processors.

All problems have a simple solution!  The more complex the solution, the
more ludicrous the analogy!

Re: sempron?

It is the AMD equivalent of a Celeron ...
It is highly Overclockable and is a very good chip,  Not quite as good as a
A64 chip, but it is very inexpensive.

Re: sempron?

How dare you compare AMD sempron processors with Celeron.  AMD Sempron is
clearly supperior to Intel Celeron!

Yes it is generally better, but you are apparently unaware that AMD uses the
Celeron the  reference in the Sempron performance rating. Sempron 2400+ is
supposed to be equivalent to a Celeron 2.4 (2400Mhz)

Re: sempron?

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?

See Sempron in link below.
