AMD Quietly Sells New Entry-Level 90nm AMD Sempron.@ 2005/02/20
Advanced Micro Devices has begun to sell its AMD Sempron processors produced using 90nm process technology with model numbers 2600+, 2800+ and 3000+ for Socket 754 infrastructure across the world: the chips can be acquired in Australia, Japan, Sweden and some other countries. While the processors are listed in AMD’s price-list, AMD’s officials deny to comment on them.
AMD Sempron 2600+, 2700+ and 3000+ chips with built-in PC3200 memory controller are marked as SDA3000AIO2BA, SDA2800AIO3BA and SDA2600AIO2BA, which means that the chips are made using 90nm SOI process technology, require 1.4V core voltage and have 128KB or 256KB L2 cache depending on the model number. Generally, the marking looks similar to another processor – AMD Sempron 3100+ – made using 90nm process technology that was unconfirmed by AMD.
