New Sempron for Socket S1 embedded and SBC systems

AMD today announced the latest addition to the embedded product lineup, the Sempron 2100+ processor. The new Sempron 2100+ has a thermal design power rating of nine watts. With the low TDP rating, the Sempron 2100+ is ideal for fan-less embedded systems.

AMD packages the Sempron 2100+ in a Socket S1 package. The Sempron 2100+ is compatible with the AMD M690T chipset. The new Sempron 2100+ is the first embedded targeted processor from AMD to feature AMD64 technology.

“By expanding our product portfolio with this new, very low power version of the highly successful AMD Sempron processor and extending the temperature support in our Geode line, AMD is delivering on our promise of customer-centric innovation for a range of embedded markets,” Embedded Computing Solutions Division Vice President Greg White said. “You will continue to see AMD offer our embedded customers the products and tools they need to get high performance, very low power products to market quickly.”

Expect the Sempron 2100+ to make its way into embedded and SBCs. AAEON and Arbor offer boards compatible with the new processor.

9 watts is pretty damn good, considering VIA's C7 is rated at 12, 15, and 20 watts, depending on the speed. I'm sure this Sempron is substantially more powerful, even though it's likely clocked several hundred Mhz lower (I'd guess between 1.1 and 1.3Ghz).

Anyone able to find an official clockspeed or amount of cache?

Probably faster than a 2GHz C7 though, except at things the C7 has dedicated hardware for like security.

I wish they would do it in a 939 package. I could swap out my mythTV processor (939 sempron 3400) and not have any fans. Would be sweet.

Why not just underclock and undervolt it and see how much heat it generates? You might be surprised by how cool it runs.

I have my sempron socket 754 down at 1Ghz and 1.1V and it barely gets above ambient temperature. To be fair it does have a slow fan on it.
