AMD has recently launched the first dual-core Sempron processors in China in a bid to counter Intel's dual-core Celeron product line in the entry-level market, according to sources at motherboard makers.

AMD Sempron 2100+ processors adopt a 65nm process, and have a core frequency of 1.8GHz. Pricing in the China market is set at RMB 399 (US$55). Due to the cheap price and potential of AMD's own-brand RS780 and 690G IGP chipsets, the CPU has been popular with consumers in China prompting them support AMD's platform.

In order to hit back, channel vendors predict Intel will drop its dual-core Celeron processor pricing. However, they pointed out that even if the two processors are equal in price, AMD's strong IGP chipsets still give the company an advantage.
Dual-core sempron for $55? Sounds like they are getting ripped off. We can get the X2 4000+ for that same price here!
