AMD announced that the official name of the Spitfire will be Duron. The processor, now called Duron, will find its place in socket A. It has a 64KB L2 cache that is addressed with full processor clock. The Duron is the little brother of the Thunderbird, which however can fall back on a 128KB L2 cache. This makes it clear that AMD is placing this processor on the market as a direct competitor to the Intel Celeron. The introduction of the Duron is planned for June and should definitely cause a stir at Intel.
