AMD releases Mobile Semprons for Socket S1

Although overshadowed by the Turion 64 X2 launch, three new Mobile Sempron processors were introduced by AMD yesterday. Bearing 3200+, 3400+, and 3500+ model numbers, the chips launched for the same Socket S1 as the new dual-core Turions, suggesting a Rev. F core and DDR2 compatibility. AMD doesn't appear to have disclosed any specifications for the chips, but considering the similarity between AMD's desktop and mobile Semprons for Socket 754, the 3400+ variant may have a 2.0 GHz clock speed and 256 KB of cache. As for the others, Reg Hardware believes they are based on the "Keene" core and feature either 256 KB or 512 KB of cache as well as 64-bit compatibility. AMD's 1,000-unit prices for the new 3200+, 3400+, and 3500+ Mobile Semprons are $107, $134, and $142, respectively.
