1GHz Duron from mid-2001
The Duron CPU from AMD, currently unbeaten in terms of price-performance ratio, will also be available with a gigahertz clock frequency from mid-2001. Together with the 1GHz Duron a new core is to be expected, since the currently used one can withstand a maximum of 850 MHz.
From the 900 MHz limit onwards, the Duron will be equipped with the 'Morgan' core, the first models are expected in the second quarter of 2001, with the 1 GHz version following in the second half of the year. In 2002, even higher clocked Duron CPUs are expected, also with 'Morgan' core.
