AMD Sempron 180 mini-review
Sep 17, 2010
: At the end of July we published preliminary specifications of Sempron
180 microprocessors. Recently, we acquired one the these Semprons, ran
a series of benchmarks on it, and compared them with test results of
other budget AMD and Intel CPUs. This mini-review presents partial
benchmarking results and our thoughts of them, and it will be useful
for those who consider buying either pre-built system with this
Sempron CPU, or OEM version of this microprocessor.
