speed amd sempron 2500 Tags: CPUs Sempron AMD Windows XP Last response: October 29, 2004 6:37 PM in CPUs Share radu_arcan October 29, 2004 6:19:47 PM My AMD Sempron 2500 will show only 2200 on the screen. Windows XP will show only 1.75 Ghz. Any ideas how to make it work at correct speed. Motherboard is Soyo k7vme. (100 133 166 can be chosen by jumper). Thanks Radu More about : speed amd sempron 2500 o1die a c 158 à CPUs a b À AMD October 29, 2004 6:30:03 PM Make sure your jumper is set at 166. fishmahn October 29, 2004 6:37:05 PM Sempron 2500 is the same speed as a 2200. It's just a rebadged Athlon XP Thoroughbred core 2200. The 2200 rating is comparing it to a P4A, the 2500 rating compares it to a Celeron D. Sempron is the budget CPU, so the ratings are tuned to compare them to the Intel budget CPU - the Celery(on). Yah, it's confusing and it stinks... Just make sure you have the jumper set to the right fsb speed for it (166) You may be able to get it to report as a Sempron 2500 with a bios update, don't know for sure though. Mike.
