AMD's Athlon 1400 and Duron 950

Duron 950

Duron 950

AMD's new Duron 950 replaces Duron 900 at the top of the AMD's value processor range. Duron is now in very close reach of the magic 1 GHz barrier and shows that even value systems will soon reach this important mark. The distance to Intel's anyway lower performing value processor Celeron has just been increased, making it even more of a mystery why people would still buy this processor. Due to the fact that Duron 950 is so close to the Gigahertz, I was benchmarking it against its Athlon-cousins.
