The new Duron 1 GHz scores slightly better than its older sibling Duron 950. In the overall comparison Duron is still quite a bit slower than its Athlon cousins, which have four times the amount of L2-cache (Athlon: 256 kB L2, Duron 64 kB L2). Tualatin, the new Pentium III or upcoming Celeron processor is also able to outscore Duron, due to its 256 kB of L2-cache and its higher core clock.
The two sub-results of Sysmark 2001 don't provide any additional information. Duron is behind the processors with the larger L2-caches.
