Clearly 2006 is a transition for AMD along with motherboard manufacturers. Socket 939 is on the way out the door quickly, though Socket 754 will still hang around it seems.
Sempron processors introduce AMD's push into low power consumption. We previously also reported on AMD's pricing for AM2-based processors. Noted prices are system builder pricing.
AMD will be introducing what it calls Energy Efficient AM2 processors, which is actually slated for this quarter. These processors are designed for LIVE! systems and other HTPC applications that require low noise and low heat.
