Sources familiar with Advanced Micro Devices' plans revealed some additional details about the forthcoming AMD Sempron processors for affordable personal computers.
According to the information X-bit labs has learnt, AMD Sempron is a product family that will live on for quite a while and will be compatible with various infrastructures. All chips will feature different specifications, performance and price and will not be compatible with each other in terms of packaging. Mobile AMD Sempron processors are likely to feature similar packaging with desktop products.
