What is the difference between these two CPUs?

probably the amount of cache. Also, there would be difference in power consumption as well since the one with bigger cache will draw more power.

well the part number is exactly same, they must be the same processor @@ I don't think you'll have lower power consumption.

They both have the same amount of cache. I wonder why they have different TDP.

possibly like the new kentsfield revision? B3->G0. only difference is TDP changed (105W -> 95W).

It may just be repackaging. After all, the Athlon XP line has been discontinued.

Or the die sizes may be different (i.e., 130nm versus 90nm).

The Sempron series only made it up to 3000+ on Socket A. Unless they made a OEM 3300+ Version.

:confused:

Does nobody read links anymore? I'd be glad to post a screenshot of CPU-Z on the one I'm running now, too.

EDIT: Text - When I get my new RAM I'll do the same for my Athlon XP 3200+ and do the same, see if I find any differences there.

A Sempron is a rebadged Athlon XP, but the performance rating is relative to the Celeron, instead of the Pentium 4, as the Athlon XP is. The speed rating difference is about 300, so a Sempron 3300+ is about the same speed as an Athlon XP 3000+.

Tells me nothing of my question. BTW my Sempron 3300+ (CPU-Z pic above) is the same caches, voltage, FSB and clock speed as my Athlon XP 3200+.
