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.

Semprons are cripped barton's, BTW i'm tying this on a AMD XP 2800. I've stumble into a den of blind fan boy.

Ok so you think AMD is lying about having a sempron based on the socket 754? I don't understand what you are getting at. I apologize if you are a non-native speaker but your english is horrible.

I guess you just haven't been up on CPU tech in the past few years because it is well known FACT that AMD processors are more powerful than Intel and they have better bang for the buck. I will admit that recently AMD has raised prices in comparison to Intel but that has nothing to do with the discussion because a 754 Sempron will still wipe the floor with a celeron anyday, just like it did when it was 754 AMD64 vs Pentium4.

"BTW Embleau try typing it ALL in caps, it's not loud enough! "

umm I'm sorry... but I do believe I cut and pasted from a website.. Blame them for the caps, not me. Notice that the rest is not in caps.

I'm sorry to hear that you guys get shafted on the price down under though.. ouch

Abraxas your still a biased fan girl/boy (let not exclude the fairer sex, which I'm assuming Abraxas is)

In Australia (yes we speak the Queens English there)

Well, considering your assumptions about me I'm going to assume that you are around 14 years old because your english is terrible and you arguments are even worse.

Intel Celeron 331 (2.67GHz LGA775 EM64T) CPU - AUD$82.50

*AMD Sempron 3000+ 64bit (S754) - AUD$124.30

Look harder. Those prices are outrageous. Not only that but that Sempron will wipe the floor with that Celeron. It's not exactly and even comparison.

BTW Abraxas old girl, being condescending about my English is one thing ...
How about try practicing what YOU teach.
It's not "sempron" it's "Sempron" names have capital letters. omg

Forgeting a to capitalize a letter is not exactly the same as completely mispelling the name, and what's worse is that you cannot even form a full and correct sentence.
