| Posted: Jul 13, 2006 3:35 am

Although i'm sure many people would've loved to have seen this happen earlier, AMD are planning to introduce dual-core based entry level Sempron processors in around a year from now, the same time single core Athlon 64s will be phased out.

 

DigiTimes and XBit Labs have the details.

 


The dual-core AMD Sempron chips, which are likely to be called Sempron X2, are expected to be produced using 65nm process technology, thus, will not consume a lot of power. Cache sizes and clock-speeds are unclear, however, the chips are to be compatible with socket AM2 and will feature dual-channel PC2-6400 (DDR2 800MHz) memory controller.
