    Hi BigDavie!

    the Sempron is a budget version of the 64bit architecture, and I'm sure there's only the one 64 bit sempron available.

    It'll probably run at a lower clock speed and have less onboard cache.

    This may not be a definitive answer though!

    Sempron is the Athlon's younger brother, it has less L2 cache and runs at a slower clock speed, there ar e a few variants and they're only being made for Socket 754 now though you'll probably find some Socket A ones floating about.
