I am looking at purchasing a Sempron cpu. I was looking at a Socket A and a s754. Comparing the two the Sempron 3000+ socket A runs at 2ghz with 512 L2 cache and the s754 runs at 1.8ghz with 128 L2 cache. I know that the socket A is a barton chip and the s754 is palemo chip. I know the palemo is a newer chipset, but the chip is running slower and a big drop in the L2 cache. Which is the better one to go with for performance?

Thanks for your time....

The Socket 754 Sempron 3000+ may be faster or slower in some applications than the Socket A Sempron 3000+, with a little advantage for the Socket 754 Sempron 3000+. Keep in mind that those new Socket 754 Semprons are based on the K8 Architecture, it is much better than the K7 Architecture and with less Frecuency and Cache L2 it can have an averagely equal performance (In some applications, higher Frecuency or Cache L2 may matter more than the architectural advantages than the Socket 754 Semprons got over the Socket A Semprons). Plus, you got the chance to upgrade later to a Socket 754 Athlon 64. Look this Benchmark' "> By the way, Palermo is the Processor Core Codename, not Chipset.
