AMD CPU SHIPMENTS are expected to increase quickly from the third quarter of this year, with the availability of the Mobile AMD Sempron and Sempron processors.

In the first year alone, AMD shipped about a million K8 CPUs, say local makers. The same sources claimed that AMD's Sempron processors will be available in Socket-A, 754- and 939-pin platforms.

According to the sources, the models will use the current AMD Athlon XP processor core, whereas the 754-pin models will be supported by chipsets known, for now, as Paris and Victoria. The 939-pin Sempron will be unveiled in early 2005, the sources told PC ProThe sources also reported that the first Mobile Sempron will, most likely, be based on the Dublin core, built with a 0.13-micron process. They reckon it'll be followed by new models featuring Sonora code, built on a 90nm process.

Websites have rumoured that the 32-bit Dublin will come in two flavours, the 2600+ and 2800+. The Sonora, it's rumoured, will be available in 3000+ and 3100+ models.
