Sempron=Athlon XP?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
i'm looking to upgrade my socket A CPU, so i was looking around, and i noticed that they have the Sempron, for socket A, but as i was looking at the specs, it looks EXACTLY like a T-bred, but with only 128KB cache...is this correct?, if so, why the heck did amd make the sempron?

Nope, it's Barton with less cache.
Less cache = less cost
Oh... you see, by then the TBred was no longer in production and they needed a less expensice chip to offer so they cut the cache down. So the Sempron was born. Now they use that name in the 754s too!

rumors say theyre the same. they aren't.
they probably perform very similar though
except 90nm for sempron... which = overclockable!

Subtle what you should really do is save up and move to Socket 939. To get a new quality mobo and then 3100+ sempron or 3000+ athlon would probably be your best bet if you are on a tight budget. Both the 3100+ and the 3000+ Athlon are very good overclockers.

My mistake, you are in part correct.
Socket "A" Sempron 22-2800+ were TBreds, the 3000+ was a Barton.
The 3300+ is probably a Barton but does run on a 166FSB.

Socket A Semprons use only 256K or 512K (3000+) Cache!!!

The Sempron 3000+ is the only Barton! All other are T-Bred B
and use 256K Cache! But the Sempron clocks better then Athlon T-Breds
Many Semprons clocks up to 2500MHz or higher!
The 2200+ and 2300+ clocks up to 200 FSB with stock VCore!

Dont´t know many about the other Semprons!
