Difference between passé recent and passé proche

I have seen usage of passé recent and passé proche in the context of French grammer. By what I have seen they are same. Venir + de + verb à l'infinitif.
So are they really same and is passé proche a misnomer of passé recent?

    I would say they are the same though i haven't heard of anyone use 'passé recent'. I'd say if they are the same, 'passé proche' is the term more often used.
