The AMD Sempron (NON-64) just an Athlon XP with a new name?
I have a sempron lying around my room that I pulled out of my computer when I pluged my AMD Athlon XP 3000+ in. But I wondered what exactly is a sempron? So I took some time and researched it, found most of the information (who knows how how much of it is fact) at wikipedia.org. From what I understand, the new low end processors for AMD that replaced the Duron are just about equivlent to standard AMD Athlon XP processors (exluding Sempron 64, which from what I understand is not the real name). The clock speed on the 3000+, which I am using so it parallel with my AMD Athlon XP 3000+, is only a 100 or so Mhz slower then my Athlon. And I also noticed that it is cheaper by sometimes upwards of 60 dollars. I'm not processor detail savy, but, how much of a difference is there in specs and performance are there between my Athlon XP 3000+ and the Sempron 3000+ Socket A?
