The term Prime refers to any weapon or warframe, or sentinel made with Orokin technology. The weapons and warframes the Tenno use are based on the Orokin's designs, but are not actually Orokin tech. Prime versions of items are actual pieces of Orokin technology[1], and frequently sport improved damage, more Polarity slots, or other stat changes that grant them an advantage over their non-Prime derivatives. According to the developers, any warframe is eligible to be primed, regardless whether or not they came from the Orokin era[2]. Presumably, this also opens up the possibility of non Orokin-era weapons being primed.

Current Tenno technology is derived from the Primes and other Orokin technology, as the Tenno have tried to imitate the success of the Orokin in the form of the non-Prime items. With the discovery of the Void, many Prime items are being reclaimed by the Tenno and reverse-engineered by the Corpus and the Grineer, their power being realized once more.
