AMD Athlon = AMD's mainstream CPU, and generally is considered as the first time AMD's CPUs were better performers than Intel's equivalents. (However, that's changing now with the Core 2 Duos). The Intel equivalent (to the Athlon 64) is the Pentium 4

Sempron = AMD's low-end/entry-level CPU with less features than the Athlon. It competes with Intel's Celeron D.

Turion 64 = AMD's mobile CPUs that compete with Intel's Pentium M and Intel Core series.

Duron = AMD's entry-level CPU before the Sempron

Opteron = AMD's server CPU that competes with Intel's Xeon series.

Athlon 64 X2 = AMD's dual-core CPUs that compete with the Intel Pentium D and Core 2 Duo series.
