Introduction

Those who have been following the processor market for some time know the rivalry between Intel and AMD, to see who develops the fastest processor. For you to have a clearer idea of how this competition works, first you need to understand how the processor market is divided. The market was divided in three segments:

  • Low-end: Destined to beginners or users who don’t need computing power.
  • Mid-range: Destined to enthusiast users or those who need computing power.
  • High-end: Destined to network servers.

This article is about the leading parts in this fight between Intel and AMD in the low-end market.

Intel’s representative in low-end market is Celeron D, while Sempron is AMD’s. Both Celeron D and Sempron are in fact versions of the high-end Intel and AMD processors with reduced features. Celeron D is a “light” version of Pentium 4, and Sempron is a “cut” version of Athlon XP or Athlon 64.
