AMD currently ships a variety of budget and mainstream desktop processors for socket FM2 platform. Many of these products integrate graphics processing unit and are marketed as APUs, however AMD also offers GPU-less processors, based on the same technology and branded as Athlon X2 or X4. Earlier this year, we reported on two Athlon processors with "Richland" core, dubbed as Athlon X2 370K and Athlon X4 760K. We recently spotted three additional "Richland" SKUs in CPU support lists on the ASUS website. New microprocessors are Sempron 250, Athlon X2 350 and Athlon X4 750.
Sempron 250 is a dual-core model, featuring 3.2 GHz clock speed and 1 MB of L2 cache. The CPU fits into 65 Watt thermal envelope. The specifications of the Sempron 250 are identical to the A4-4000 SKU, although the latter chip also has integrated GPU.
Dual-core Athlon X2 350 runs at 3.5 GHz, that is 300 MHz higher than the Sempron. In all other aspects this Athlon X2 is similar to the Sempron 250.
Athlon X4 750 is a locked version of the "Trinity"-based 750K. Both processors have 3.4 GHz clock speed and 4 MB of L2 cache. Besides locked multiplier, the 750 also differs from the 750K by newer core stepping, and lower 65 Watt TDP.
The summary of CPU specifications is provided in the table below:
|Sempron 250||2||3.2 GHz||1 MB||65W|
|Athlon X2 350||2||3.5 GHz||1 MB||65W|
|Athlon X4 750||4||3.4 GHz||4 MB||65W|
