AMD Releases Duron 850

Benchmark Results, Continued

In the Linux Kernel compilation Duron falls quite a bit short of Athlon, which is obviously due to its smaller 64 kB L2-cache. However, Duron is once more able to beat Celeron 800 with ease.

The FPU-dependent 3D Studio Max benchmark shows that Duron shares the same FPU with Athlon, making it perform on par with its bigger brother and leaving the Intel-competition with its comparably weak FPU behind.
