Aren't Semprons basically watered-down Athlons? The only difference I can be sure of is their extremely tiny cache.

the first semprons where based on the Athlon XP (socket A thoroughbred core)
then they went to the athlon 64 (socket 754 Paris/Palermo core )

they have reduced caches and in some cases lacking addition CPU instructions/ support
