AMD debuts Sempron 3400+

By Justin Mann on
With 256kb L2 Cache, a 2GHZ operating frequency, on-die MMC for single-channel operation and a nice and cool TDP of 64W, AMD has given us the answer to Intel's continued clockspeed craze with the Celeron D. It is a Socket 754 processor and is starting for wholesalers at a mere $134. This fits in nicely with the price bracket of S754 motherboards. With 90mm process, SSE2 and CNQ support, this is the fastest and coolest of the entry-level processors on the market to date. I am sure we will see a response from Intel in the near future.

You can read more details here. Once some decent benchmarks for processors released in the past few months come out I will consolidate them into a single post so we can see how these newer beasts, low or high end, are faring.
