Cores1More cores means more threads and therefore more processes can be run simultaneously
Speed2.9GHzClock frequency indicates processor speed, but is only reliable in comparisons between CPUs of the same family
CodenameSargasThe code name given by the manufacturers
Release Date07 Dec 2010 The more recent the release, the more likely the CPU will receive up-to-date manufacturer support
TDP45WThe lower the TDP, the less power the CPU requires to run and thus the more efficient it is and the less heat it creates
L1 Cache64KBThe bigger the L1 cache, the more data can be stored for lightning CPU access to priority processes (though a bigger cache means a higher latency
L2 Cache1024KBAfter L1 cache, L2 is utilized for slower (but still very fast) data access
Lithography45nmThe smaller the lithographic technology used, the less power is required to run the CPU, and the less heat is created during intense use
CPU SocketSocket AM3+The motherboard socket and CPU socket should match to indicate the CPU is compatible with the motherboard and will fit into it
Unlocked MultipliernoAn unlocked clock multiplier means you can adjust the multiplier for an overclocking speed boost

Sempron 150 compatibility review

Overall, the AMD Sempron 150 has poor performance. Its 1 core clocked at 2.9 GHz provides swift processing speeds but with only a single core, it will never match up to modern competitors.

The CPU is now over 9 years old, which means it is extremely out of date and is based on very aged technologies. This processor will be dwarfed in performance by its modern counterparts, and will likely have very little support from AMD.

Created with lithographic technology sized at 45 nanometers, the Sempron 150 is not efficient at all by modern standards, although with a Thermal Design Power of 45W it does not require very much power to run.
