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.

TDP between the 2 companies is not directly comparable at all. Stick both of them in a system that is configured as close as possible and compare total system power draw for a true comparison.

agreed. Isn't Intel's TDP calculation an average consumption/release while AMD is closer to what might be considered a max? I remember reading about that when the first A64s came out, because that made their performance:power ratio that much stronger in comparison w/ Intel's offerings.

Plus the tdp on AMDs chips also represents the memory controller for the system, whereas with Intel that is separate (I suppose that would make a comparable Intel system eat a little bit more power & give off more heat). Though I do think the geodes do not have an integrated north bridge. Is that correct?

Works for me. Here's the link to the actual page:

So AMD's highest end CPUs can consume near their max TDP. Woo.

Otherwise for the past few years all their other CPUs have been consuming way below the TDP they were selling at, with the exception of some 25W Turions / Turion X2s.

Dunno about this one, 9W is very low, even at 1GHz. However the 9W will be a worst case scenario - if this thing has power saving modes it probably has a far low average power consumption.
