I was wondering what the difference was between the amd athlon XP+ and the sempron. I have a new sempron and trying to put it in my asus A7N8X-E but it isn't booting. I was wondering wheer i need to check to see if a bios upgrade is needed or something.

Yeah, AMD really screwed with their naming convention.

The higher speed Semprons are brain dead 64 Bit, socket 754 cores in a smaller geometry process. The intent is to eventually make the 754 the mid-low range product line replacing the Athlon and Duron Socket A chips that are more expensive to manufacture.

Sempron = rebagded barton/thouroughbred - which core you get is pure potluck as I recently found out after building a batch of 15 Sempron 2400's

im sure i heard from somewhere that the Semprons are the replacement for the Durons. So basically a cost effective solution for comuter builders, a little like the celerons of intel :)

i kore i think that is exactly what they are, budget cpu's to run against the celeron, not much good but for the net and office products. i would't buy one if you want to game, create music or anything intensive.

can i add the current specs of my computer:

Sempron Skt A 2800+
Shuttle FN41 Motherboard
1024Mb Crucial PC2700 Ram
160Gb Hitachi Deskstar

I can create music and hi-res image editing, as well as some video editing with relative ease. I have also been able to play Quake 3, Warcraft, Half Life 2 etc fine. They may be budget CPUs but i would say that they are much better than there closely related celeron cousins. Very competent CPU :)

dammnit lancer! :p

Sempron = rebadged athlon xp with either barton or thoroughred core. thats all.

its not inferior to celerons. Just as good as your Athlon XP for gaming and creative work
