More astute readers will immediately note that the Sempron 3400+ is darned near a Newcastle-core based Athlon64 3000+. It is no coincidence that they are price similarly ($125 and $140 respectively). There is no doubt that the extra 256KB of L2 cache on the 3000+ will enable it to best the 3400+ at stock speeds. However, the 3000+ typically overclocks to only 2.2 - 2.3GHz with air cooling. Can the Sempron 3400+ do better? We'll let the following two screenshots and the subsequent performance figures to speak for themselves.
