I have a bit of a problem with a system I own (Compaq Presario SR1603WM).

According to Compaq's website (now HP's) the processor installed is a Semptron 3200+. According to Compaq, and the manufacture of the motherboard (Asus in this case) the CPU socket is 939.
CPU-Z, PCWizard, and AMD's own cpuid program confirm that the system is a Semptron 3200+ on a 939 socket.

Here is My problem:

Acording to AMD's website on it's processors, this beast doens't exist....

How can 6 sources of info be wrong?? I'm in serious doubt that AMD would churn out a few "specialty" processors, no matter now big the company putting in the request is. Did AMD simply neglect to put this processor on it's website listing its products??


No, I have not eye-balled the processor, it has a factory HSF that I'd perfer not to break the thermal compound's seal at least till after the warranty expires.

thank you for your time;

You have an OEM system.......so that is OK. They made 939 Semprons, just not for the public to buy as just the cpu.

It is correct and you are on 939.

Guess that AMD did do a 'special' run of processors, but for all of them not just one....hadn't thought of that.

I orignally was looking for the power consumption and heat generation figures at the time and that is when i ran across the not just a lack of datea, but a vortex suggesting that it was from an alternate reality or something. Sorry watched too many back episodes of StarTrek: TNG yesterday.

thank you for your time;
