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
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.

well not always, but they have been exaggerating their TDPs in a way. i remember when i bought my first A64, a 3000+ socket 754, and the TDP was given as 89W. however the top of the line chip at the time , the 3400+ was also rated as 89W. thus the 3000+s max TDP must have been way below 89W.
so i'm guessing AMD gives one rating for a whole family of products, maybe to make it easier on motherboard manufacturers to build boards capable of handling future chips? intel wouldn't intentionally make it harder on mobo manufacturers by misstating their numbers... so what gives?
also, as far as the toms link is concerned, two things must be kept in mind:
1. this is toms we are talking about
2. see above.
it would be nice to get some kind of official explanation from a third party, like a mobo vendor.
