AMD AMD confirmed details of its "Next Generation Processor Technology" today, but it's really business as usual for the company. As AMD heads to four-core country, the company will continue to improve the bandwidth of its processor package, tweak memory and rely on help from partners to compete with an upcoming line of revamped chips from Intel.

AMD have lost it. Seperon what a crippled barton/thunder bird with ss2, pfft I'll have the new Celeron.

There is two versions of the sempron. There is one based on the AthlonXP and there is another one based on the AMD64 socket 754. It's a much better deal than a celeron.

Of course the informatation from Amd.com would never be wrong lol, I smell fan boys not realists.

btw the socket 754 Seperon is still only sse2, the a-socket is worse using sse.

Celeron D is sse3 and in my part of world cheaper than the Seperon.

Of course if money was no object the AMD dual cores would be better investment.

So you're claiming that AMD is lying in their specifications? Do you have any evidence to back that up?

btw the socket 754 Seperon is still only sse2, the a-socket is worse using sse.

BTW the SSE3 instruction set is not the end all be all of performance. I would rather have an overall faster, better thermally designed, higher memory bandwith cpu than a piece of junk with SSE3.

It's funny that even without SSE2 on the AthlonXP, it still wiped the floor with Pentium4s and then when SSE3 came out and AMD64s didn't have support for it they still wiped the floor with Pentiums.

I wouldn't say that both are a better deal... the 462 Sempron (which I believe is not produced anymore) is in fact just a crippled Barton as the guy said. Now the 754 Sempron I have to agree is a very cool choice because of the on chip memory controller (or however is its name). If I were to assmble a new PC today, I would still buy AMD, 754 Sempron or any Athlon64, but that can change instantly if Intel starts offering better deals. I don't belong to AMD church :-)
