AMD AM1 - cute

Athlon 5350
Athlon 5150
Sempron 3850
Sempron 2650

All 25watts consumption - unreal. 22micron.
All except the 2650 quad cored.
Not sure the differences on AMD onchip vid.

Gigabyte MB is $35.

Prices are semi-jacked -- should be compared to "older" offerings
Socket AM3/+. Most of that stuff should blow away these tinker toy
processors, though they're $100+ CPUs (4 to 8 cores).

Good enough to beat a Sempron 145 be interesting to one of the quads
above, tho.

They're pushing up to $65 on them. Be more real if that were like $40
tops. Or just go get a 75watt AMD processor in at least a dualcore
for that, and as much with a zillion MB options instead of one AM1
socketed Gigabtye.

Could be cool down the road, tho. Build your own wristwatch computer.

Try rereading the post...notice anything funny about one Gigabyte AM1
socketed MB. Are you a communist?
No, I am not a communist. But after re-reading the post, I still don't
see a question...

see a question...

More or less how if where the new AMD AM1 processors can expect to
gain a platform foothold, when generically searching NewEgg for AMI,
(aside the four listed processors), that one-&-only Gigabyte MB pops
up.

Last vaguely similar attempt I made in that direction was a Celeron D.
I'd sworn off Intel, probably for near a decade, due to what I saw as
price gouging since directly after 286 processors. All big and bad
Intel reputation: Any programming code, good stuff, anyway, is
written on an Inet. I was total AMD, IOW, maybe a couple Cyrix/TI and
whatnot. For the money, however, Intel reversed course, apparently
couldn't keep technologically superior to AMD and stepped in,
alongside the ditch, for pricing its Celeron D accordingly. Not very
gutsy -- wouldn't ram it's head through tile bathroom walls, like
Batty howling like a wolf while hunting down Deckard in Bladerunner --
although for a Celeron D, it did overclock (like no tomorrow). A
favorable impression, have to admit, unlike anything I'd run into all
those years with AMD.

Besides, the AM1's are in my league. I quit spending money on
upgrades, working, actually, on building up computers for the right
sale price to dump one for covering buying out parts on the next
upgrade. People are jerks: sell them something for a good price,
nothing, give them the parts' sum tacking invoice with little more
than nothing for my labor, and they smile out the side of their faces,
green with resentment and envy, turn around the next day and expect
from me a lifetime of personalized IT tech support and tutoring.

Go to BestBuy or find a real shop, like Paul's, where quality is
priced according.

Only curious what a quad-core drawing 25watts at around 2GHz a core
portends. Damn thing, to think about it, might run on passive air
cooling.

I'm not really as much posing any question;- the problem with good
questions are good answers. And, you know how that goes: aside from
accorded pragmatics, perfectly good answers, philosophically speaking,
can be rare commodities.

AMD slips out interesting budget CPUs now and then.
There was the Phenom II X2 - only two cores but full L3.
Then the Athlon II X4 - a Llano with GPU disabled. Had no L3 but big L2,
and some minor improvements over the Phenoms.

Remember them, but probably too rich for my blood at the time
"...released the Socket AM2+ version of Phenom II in December 2008,
while Socket AM3 versions with DDR3 support, along with an initial
batch of triple- and quad-core processors were released on February 9,
2009."

This is going to sound rude, but my fastest processor to-date is an
AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ Windsor 2.2GHz Socket AM2 89W (on a Gigabyte
m61pme-s2 ). I found it on Ebay for some ridiculously low price
(under $20/US...ah hah! packrat's treasure trove. found the
transaction from a couple years ago)...
ebay > paypal
Last One
AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ Energy Efficient - 2.2 GHz Dual-Core
(ADO4200IAA5DD)...
Condition:Used
Quantity: 1
$16.00
Expedited (4-5 business days)
USPS Priority Mail FREE
14 day return

That means I'm not even up to a AM2+ MB. My MB (the Gigabyte onboard
video) will run probably over 130F !! on a couple of its chipsets,
although the CPU offhand doesn't run over 115F (medium-decent
aftermarket CPU heatsink/fan on it).

Just ordered out another Samsung 128G SSD and will be moving an older
64G Samsung SSD bought over a year ago onto the AMD X2 platform, a
replacement for a 5+ year-old Seagate 250G SATA. (I may move that
drive over here, run two of the same in a pair, and pull a WD6400AAKS
(640G) for a "storage" drive.

These are both relatively early but purchased new Gigabyte MBs,
running very early dualcores (AMD and an Intel). Having some regrets
with on two SATA HDD headers on each (to include probably worse
regrets involved with PCI controllers in various VIA/SI chipset
incantations...as we boldly go into today's 3T HDD size territory,
naturally).

I'll tell you, I'll take all the wrecking-ball performance I can get
off a processor, but I'd first have to qualify that with low-micron
fab productions for cooler operation. (Where I'm at, Pedro, near the
equator, it's pushing a humid 90F now, well before the sun is over the
back of the house and starts burning the front - for some pretty
toasty evenings. Two computers, two studio grade sound amplifiers,
quad- and dual-array vacuum tube instrumental amplifiers...yes, not
to fear, I will turn on the AC after awhile, though I'm somewhat used
to it, have lived actually on the equator, and can also get by with
fans - & of course, lots of showers.)

All processor pluses, anyway, at a low-point operative entry point I'd
qualify myself. I don't need the latest I5 or I7, an eight or dozen
core AMD.

But I'll sure take what's given, effectively, free by way
technological advancements, as low-end technological offerings as well
rise in performance to provide future needs.
