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

  • 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.

Nice Processor

KTL, PriceGrabber
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

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?

  • 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

  • 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

Лучший выбор для работы.

Meauzer, Onliner
29 September 2011
  • Summary: Неплохой процессор, несмотря на старость. Для работы, самое то. И стоит сейчас копейки. А маленькую частоту работы можно компенсировать разгоном. А разгоняется он прекрасно, и при этом менять стандартное охлаждение не потребуется. Стоит счас временно такой дома, 3000+. До 2.500 разогнал, а дальше просто материнка не дает. Но, надо понимать, что не для игр он, а для работы. И с GTS250, как делают некоторые, его использовать категорически нелогично.
  • Pros: Хороший разгон., Не сильно греется., Низкая стоимость.
  • Cons: нету
