Maybe it's just me, but I hate that name "Sempron". I just picture Homer Simpson walking into a store and saying "Give me a sempron my good man" and then having a group of simpsons world geeks making jokes about it to each other.

Maybe I should stop buying the Simpsons DVD box sets...

well i dont really know of any product names for cpus that ive loved, but they come up with 'logical' reasons for them lol.

sempron was derived from the spanish words seimpre meaning always, and of cours the -on is just added because it matches to opteron, athlon, etc. i never really like the names pentium or athlon, but they grow on you after a while.

I guess we're different, pentium, athlon, opteron, I like all those names. It's the "semp" part that bothers me. Sounds too much like "simp", as in simpleton, as in Homer J. :lol:

It's suppost to be a low-end chip. Meant for people that use the computer for simple internet/email etc.
Samething as a celeron.
