    The socket A semprons are pretty sucky processors, your 2800 XP is better than all of them. You have twice the L2 cache and a better core.

    The Semprons are mostly re-branded Thoroughbred-B, and some crippled bartons with half the L2 cache. They also run at very low multipliers...

    The Semprons are definitely lower than any Athlon XP with a Barton core (2500XP and up)

    But they are the same as any Athlon XP with 256kb of L2, which are older.

    A socket A/462 Sempron is a T-bred B with the rating changed to compare with intel celerons,
    now, theres 1 Socket A sempron which is decent, the 3000+ which is a 166/333mhz FSB with a Barton core, which im not sure, but i think it runs at 2.0ghz, making it a Athlon XP 2700+ give or take, the issue is that it costs (give or take 5 bucks) the same as a socket 754 2.0ghz 3400+ Sempron Palermo, which is a superior processor, so, in the end of the day, Socket A samprons are a waste of money and time, and since AMD is no longer shipping Socket A chips, this is a history class,

    socket A semprons are a lamentable end to a proud plataform which has brought AMD from picking a tombstone to actually competing with intel, the pluto showed AMD had a product, the thunderbird humiliated the Pentium 3, and the williameth and northwood A were at the mercy of the Palomino and Tbred-A/B, its a shame AMD had to end it this way

    i just think the socket A samprons were a humiliating move for a plataform that made AMD what it is, they should have ended their current stock of socket A processors and then give it the old viking funeral, insted of manufacturing rebranded crap,
