Socket AM1 is a socket for the AMD (Advanced Micro Devices) Sempron and Athlon processors. It is a budget-oriented socket that was introduced in 2014 and was designed for use in small form factor and low-power devices such as nettops, netbooks, and embedded systems. The socket supports the AMD Kabini and Temash APUs (Accelerated Processing Units) and has 941 pin contacts.
It should be noted that Socket AM1 is considered to be an older socket and is no longer actively supported by AMD. This means that new processors and motherboards are not being developed for this socket, and it is likely that it will eventually be phased out. If you are looking to build a new system, it would be advisable to consider a more recent socket, such as AM4, which supports the newer Ryzen processors and has a wider range of motherboards available.

Best cpu AM1
The AMD Athlon 5370 is considered as one of the best processors that are available for the AM1 socket. It has a quad-core design and a clock speed of 2.0 GHz which can be boosted up to 2.3 GHz. It also has a TDP of 25 watts, making it energy efficient. The Athlon 5370 is based on the “Kabini” architecture, and it’s designed for small form factor and low power devices such as nettops, netbooks, and embedded systems. It is suitable for basic tasks such as web browsing, document editing, and media playback.
