Sempron, a recently announced microprocessor from Advanced Micro Devices intended for clients looking for affordable solution that still delivers decent performance, has made it to the market: stores in the USA as well as in Asia are now selling various flavors of AMD Sempron products.

AMD Sempron central processing units are positioned as 32-bit solutions for value market segment – personal computers priced below $1000 – and compete with the arch-rival’s Intel Celeron D chip that saw the light of the day in July, 2004.

Xbitlabs.Dealtime.com search-engine has found AMD Sempron models 2400+, 2500+, 2600+, 2800+ and 3100+ on sale for $65, $79, $89, $118 and $129 respectively in the USA. Japanese web-site Akiba PC Hotline reports about models 2400+, 2500+ and 2600+ of AMD Sempron processors available in Tokyo, Japan.

Business prices for AMD Sempron processors 3100+, 2800+, 2600+, 2500+, 2400+, 2300+ and 2200+ are $126, $109, $85, $74, $61, $45 and $39 respectively.

AMD said Sempron processor would be available for the desktop in model numbers 2200+, 2300+, 2400+, 2500+, 2600+, 2800+ and 3100+. The Sempron 3100+ is designed for Socket 754 infrastructure, while other chips are intended for Socket A infrastructure that supports 333MHz processor system bus. Model numbers of AMD Sempron processors should not be compared directly to those of Athlon XP and Athlon 64 chips, as the Sempron products feature lower core-clocks and less cache.
