AMD Duron 900 MHz Processor Review

Quake III and Content Creation

This content was originally featured on and has been converted to PC Perspective's website. Some color changes and flaws may appear.

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.
