I've seen reviews of the Sempron 3100+ on E stepping (so guessing the E6 64-bits perform roughly the same) but I haven't seen any reviews with the 3000+ Sempron for Socket 754. The latest core on the 3100+ runs as fast as the Athlon 64 2800+, with improvements in memory controllers making up for the twice less cache, and so I'm hoping the 3000+ performance is not too much slower (i.e. comparable to a theoretical Athlon 64 2700+) - is the 3000+ Sempron closer to the 3100+ in performance or the 2800+ below? I'd love it if anyone posted some reviews /smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' />

Ta for any info!!!

The 3000+ only has 128K less cache than the 3100+, that is the only difference. It shouldn't make that much of a difference because the K8 architecture is not very much cache dependent.
