Sempron is a single core processor, for many people a thing of the past. Market demand is turning to cheap dual core CPUs instead of slightly cheaper single cores. Thus, AMD uses a smaller number of Regor cores which can’t operate on certain frequencies required to be branded as Athlon II X2, or if the L2 cache is faulty, one logic core is locked and sent to market as Sargas single core or Sempron if you like. Really silent, really cheap, and efficient; capable of running p HD video with no problems at all. So if the yields are good, and let’s presume they are, for Regor core, there is no reason to lock away one functional core and earn less money than you would if you could sell it as cheap Athlon II X2. If at all possible consider an Athlon which has at least 2 cores to run windows a lot better etc. Overclocking can be achieved by raising the default HT Link value.

Running it in a small office desktop computer, you could be very well be wasting a whole lot of potential.
AMD Sempron 140
The Sempron is able to run bit operating systems however beware it will be slow due to the lack of resources. Specifications In the table below you can review detailed specifications of Sempron and other models that will show up later in the performance graphs. The new Sempron chips also hide away some really interesting features that enable you to literally double the computing performance, but first things first. Even AMD-V virtualization technology is supported, but the single core could end up being too weak for any serious virtualization tasks.
Originally AMD intended these processors to be used in combination with the low-end AMD G chipset, which would make a perfect platform for small, efficient, and cheap systems used for web surfing, non HD multimedia playback, or simple office tasks. So if the yields are good, and let’s presume they are, for Regor core, there is no reason to lock away one functional core and earn less money than you would if you could sell it as cheap Athlon II X2.

Overclocking can be achieved by raising the default Semlrontm Link value. I would like to thank Links for providing the processor sample for this review. Really silent, really cheap, and efficient; capable of running p HD video with qmd problems at all.
The windows 10 upgrade is not compatible with my graphics card, so Mad have to revert to windows 7 home, but rather than 32 bit, I want the 64 bit.

Sempron comes clocked at 2. It was a rather silent introduction, with very akd websites reporting the news. The second reason, and this is just my guess, is the very good yields for the Regor core. There are several possible reasons for just one Sempron SKU for now.

There are two areas in my system info that says something different about the system type. We have seen a large number of successfully unlocked Sempron s, which seems to confirm the Regor high yields theory.
