The Duron is also one of the most overclockable processor
s currently on the market
, in other words it has replaced the Intel Celeron
as the official overclocker's dream.
A friend of mine bought a 600MHz
Duron last week, and we experimented in overclocking it last night. It now runs stable at 896MHz, with standard cooling, and without any other fancy overclocking tricks. Thats almost a 50% increase in speed, without forking out any extra money. All hail AMD!
