Sempron is a family of budget 32-bit x86 microprocessors developed by AMD and introduced in early 2004, superseding the Duron family.

Overview[edit]

Since 1999, with the introduction of the K7-based Athlon (and it's budget variant Duron), AMD has managed to compete with Intel head-to-head fairly well. On July 28, 2004 AMD introduced their Sempron family of processors as a successor to the Duron family. The name is derivative of the Latin word "Semper" meaning "always". The name is meant to imply these processors are strong, robust. AMD suggested Sempron meant for "daily use, practical, and part of everyday life".

K7-based Processors[edit]

As AMD done with Duron, the original Sempron family was K7-based on the Athlon XP's Thoroughbred and Thorton cores. Both cores have the same base features as their desktop XP counterparts and are limited to Socket A motherboards.
