AMD's Duron 1.3GHz processor - FrostyTech.com AMD's Duron 1.3GHz processor
Mon Jan 21, 2002 | 12:27A| PermaLink
ALTHOUGH VALUE PROCESSORS AREN'T as flashy as the latest processor powerhouses from AMD and Intel, they're much more in line with what a lot of us can afford. Done right, they should deliver on the value proposition they're supposed to represent: great performance for the price. The revamped Duron and Celeron processors from AMD and Intel, respectively, might just live up to their callings. They're quite a bit faster than their predecessors, and they're nearly nipping at the heels of the low-end Athlon XP and Pentium 4 processors. Today, AMD ups the ante in the value world once again with its Duron 1.3GHz. Naturally, we're going to give you the scoop on how this latest Duron stacks up against the competition. Last time around, at 1.2GHz, we saw the debut of Intel's new Celeron, overhauled courtesy of the Tualatin core from the Pentium III. With a full 256MB of L2 cache, the new Celeron gave the Duron a run for its money for the first time in ages. This time out, AMD felt compelled to demonstrate exactly how the Duron's value proposition plays out in the real world. Not only did they ratchet up the Duron's clock speed by a notch, but they also built a custom Duron-driven system for under $600. And that's with a discrete graphics card sitting in the AGP slot. Does this latest Duron keep the Celeron at bay? Could a $600 PC ever satisfy TR's insatiable desire for computing power? Read on to find out.
