what do they mean? I think that Sempron comes from the Spanish word "siempre" it means always. it makes sense, the president on AMD, Hector Ruiz, is Hispanic, the Sempron came out while he has been "in office". but what do the other words mean???

I know Sempron comes from Latin Semper (always) and Athlon is short for decathlon. Don't know about the rest.

Only some overclock like crazy, others are junk. Kinda sad how an AthlonXP 1700 can crush a 2.6Ghz Celeron in basically ANY benchmark and the low end Athlon will overclock like crazy too. Better things to spend your money on too
