err.. no, not really
the Sempron is exactly the same, but with less cache. and the earlier Semprons didn't have X86-64 (mine does, as do all now I think)
they don't run hotter. and clock for clock, they are basically the same, unless your programs really need cache.
tell me, have you actually used a Sempron?
