    AMD Sempron 3100+ Review

    (Page 1 of 9 )

    So, you want to buy a regular processor and do it at a budget price, right? Instead of looking at an antique K7-based AthlonXP, maybe it's time you check out AMD's newer Sempron line. As our review shows, you may just be in for a nice surprise.

    Today, we’re looking at the swan of the Sempron family, the Sempron 3100+. The Sempron 3100+ is based off of the "Paris" core. Paris is the 256kb L2 cache version of Newcastle, with a few features missing, like the x86-64 compatibility. No big loss, since I've found approximately zero use for that over the past year with my A64. Until Microsoft comes up with an operating system that supports it, and a killer app actually makes use of the extra width, we’ll stay skeptical on this being a feature worth spending money on.

    For nearly as long as I've been building computers, AMD has been the class of the "budget" processor arena. With their line of Duron processors, cheap processing power was available to the masses, especially when pitted against their rivals from Intel, the Celeron line of processors. While the recent Celeron D's are much more competitive, the previous generation was absolutely horrible. But I digress.

    AMD has recently done away with the Duron moniker, and renamed their lower end processors Sempron. (I'm not going to get into mocking the name. It's just too easy.)
