AMD Sempron LE-1300
Released January, 2008
The Pros:Very affordable pricing for 2.3GHz, albeit single-core. Runs fairly cool, does not overtax fans. Good budget option for those learning to build computers.
The Cons:Not very amenable to overclocking. Video encoding and graphics output lacking compared to dual-core setups.
The Sempron LE-1300 is the most powerful single-core processor in AMD's Sempron line of energy-efficient, budget 65 nm processors, largely meant to compete with Intel's Celeron D line. The Socket 2 LE-1300 has a processing speed of 2.3 GHz, 128KB of L1 and 512KB of L2 cache, and a low thermal design power of 45W.
The LE-1300 supports AMD's 3DNow! basic vector processing, which is designed to improve graphics performance. The processor is single-core and performs 64-bit processing. It has 800MHz of hypertransport speed, and the retail box includes a heat sink and fan. The only difference between the LE-1300 and the LE-1250 is 100MHz of processing speed.
