I think I need to clarify my original e-mail.  The Sempron processor is a 32
bit processor.  There are two socket styles for the Sempron: The Socket A
style, and the Socket 754 style.  The Socket A style is going away,
including Semprons. http://the-inquirer.net/?article=21377

Socket 754 motherboards are supposed to handle both the 32-bit Sempron, and
the 64-bit Athlon64.  But as always, double check with the board

Of course, AMD is supposed to announce Socket M2 next year.
