Sempron 2800+ Processor

alltoohuman, PriceGrabber
31 October 2006
  • Summary: This is an excellent budget CPU, and if you're short on cash, get a Sempron 64. You'll hardly notice the difference between this and an Athlon 64. My CPU-Z actually reports mine as an Athlon 64, which is odd. Don't let the 256KB of cache scare you away, you probably won't notice it. I can actually compare this with my Athlon 64 day to day usage.
  • Pros: excellent budget cpu
  • Cons: none

26 October 2006
  • Summary: I WOULD RATHER USE THE ATHALON 64 PROCESSOR THAN THE SEMPRON IF I HAD A CHOICE. SOME MOTHERBOARDS GIVE YOU NO CHOICE.
  • Pros: LOWER COST THAN THE ATHLON 64 PROCESSOR GOOD PERFORMANCE
  • Cons: NOT AS FAST A RESPONSE AS THE ATHALON 64, PLUS A LIMITED NUMBER OF MOTHERBOARDS THAT SUPPORT THIS PROCESSOR

Great processor!

  • Summary: This has been a really wonderful desktop processor. It runs faster than it looks, and can adequately power a low-range desktop computer. I would recommend this processor to anyone looking to build a new word-processing/ internet surfing PC on a budget.
  • Pros: Quick, cheap, works.
  • Cons: Slightly slow when running big application.

  • Summary: This processor is very efficient for many purpose, such as file storage or multimedia center pc. The performance is pretty good too. However I found if I run 24x7, the stock heatsink is loud and does not dissipate heat good enough.
  • Pros: Low price. Decent preformance
  • Cons: Box heatsink is not efficient

AMD Sempron 64 2800+ CPU for Socket 754

jj69, PriceGrabber
20 July 2006
  • Summary: It's amazing what you can buy for $30 on clearance. This is essentially an Athlon 64 processor with a crippled cache, but at a peanuts price. Amazing speed and flexibility per dollar. Really easy to overclock, even with the stock heatsink (but it can go a lot higher with a good aftermarket model). With both Socket 754 and AGP being phased out, there are great deals out there for matching motherboards and video cards too. You absolutely cannot go wrong.
  • Pros: 64 bit support; being closed out at outstanding prices; easy to overclock; low core temperature
  • Cons: Socket 754 does not support dual channel memory; Fan on stock heatsink too noisy

Nice Processor

13 July 2006
  • Summary: A very value-priced processor that's great for daily tasks. With a decent motherboard and some decent memory, it can be overclocked to good speeds without any problems. Despite not support dual-channel memory, it still operates nicely without any slowdowns.
  • Pros: 64-bit support, low power, overclockability
  • Cons: 256-k L2 cache, original HSF is noisy, no C'n'Q support, single channel memory interface

Good CPU for the low price

mozillafirefix, PriceGrabber
5 July 2006
  • Summary: This CPU runs perfectly in my "yet another $200 whitebox". Coupled with a low-priced ECS motherboard, 512M RAM, it is powerful enough for light office editing, internet surfing, music and video playing -- so far so satisfied for everyday jobs. The stock fan however is a bit noisy, being much louder than my PNY 4700le video fan, Ultra V-Series power supply fan and a generic 120mm ball bearing system fan. Anyway for the $29.99 price I am more than happy with it.
  • Pros: Superb performance for the price ($29.99 + shipping at Fry's Outpost); Low voltage and frequency keep the system temprature low
  • Cons: Noisy stock fan; 256k L2 cache is at most for a decent office computer

overclocker's dream bargain

sykoman5000, PriceGrabber
11 May 2006
  • Summary: This chip is awesome. It was quite fast at stock speed, but once i overclocked it, it became a beast. With the stock voltage of 1.4v, i got this baby from 1.6 ghz to 2.3ghz. I probably could push it further, but having two sticks of ram limits my computer. With only 1 stick, i have pushed it over 300fsb, which equates to over 2.4 ghz.
  • Pros: overclocks easily fast runs cool
  • Cons: no cool 'n quiet for 2800+

Huh why didn't they charge for 64-bit?

wizardefc, PriceGrabber
26 February 2006
  • Summary: The Sempron 2800+ I received was labeled as a 32-bit but actually turned out to be a 64-bit version:-) I really do understand why AMD and other manufacturers market thing this way so, don't take the title literally. Anyhow this chip overclocks well. Perfect chip for a budget system.
  • Pros: Can be overclocked very well.
  • Cons: Old 754 socket

Cool and good performance CPU

18 February 2006
  • Summary: I bought it for my desktop because I want to set up a server to share my pictures to my friends. And I found Sempron has low price but not bad performance. Besides, it is quiet and less thermal heat. Good for basic usage of computing.
  • Pros: quiet, fast enough for general usage
  • Cons: none
