AMD Duron Applebred vs. Athlon XP Thoroughbred
 
Piotke pits the Athlon XP TbredB against the newly introduced Duron Applebred



Quote:

Recently AMD introduced its new durons. I bought one of them, the 1.6 ghz version. The most interesting part of this cpu is its core voltage, only 1.5 V.
This cpu begged to be compared with an Athlon XP, dlt3c (known for reaching speeds up to 2700Mhz!). Is the new Duron an equally good overclocker ? Maybe even better ? Find out in this review.

very well written review !
enjoyed reading it.

nice review,
I expected the difference to be a little bit bigger, turns out the cache isn't that important voor AMD

but why didn't you mod the duron applebred so the full cache was restored? Like they did @ Overclockers.com

It wasn't his Applebred + CPU was gone before the mod was released :)

J have K7S5A motherboard from ECS and my duron 1600 works with no vmod on 166 FSB which gives 2000MHz. On this setting every benchmark works well and there are no lockups.
Sandra 2004 results: multimedia: integer 18380 (XP2600+ 19080), float: 21064 (XP2600+19334)

that a pretty good bang-4-the-buck in my humble opinion :)

Can this CPU run in a SMP system???

DUR0N 8th October 2003 20:54

presumably
check the 2cpu.com forums for more SMP info :)
