AMD Duron 900 MHz Processor Review
Quake III and Content Creation

Notice that the Duron when running at 900 MHz pulls off a great score, but it is just above what our Athlon 900 did a while back. Of course at that time, 900 MHz was the top CPU available. The overclocked test showed a significant improvement as well. As usual, at 1600x1200, we see it all level out because of the video card.
I was a bit surprised to see that Content Creation did not get a great increase with the Duron on a DDR platform. The Athlon seemed to have more of an increase than that... The overclocked Duron took it by a lot more than I expected as well.
