XBit ha recensito i Duron con core Morgan a 1.0 e 1.1 GHz


Well, new Duron processors on Morgan core are another evolutionary step forward of the value processor family by AMD. In fact, there seem to be no revolutionary innovations besides SSE support, which could speed up the newcomer significantly. Of course, increased TLB and Data Prefetch Mechanism do affect the Morgan's performance positively. However, this increase doesn't exceed 5%. Nevertheless, due to more progressive architecture, which has been its trump from the very first CPU models, Duron is still much faster than Celeron, Intel's value processor. Moreover, in some cases elder Duron processors work even faster than Pentium 4 1.5GHz in i845 based systems. And this is not the top yet. Further reduction of DDR SDRAM prices should inevitably let us use this memory in low-cost systems one day, so that Duron performance will grow even more. So, in the meanwhile, AMD has no causes for concern in the value market sector.

In conclusion we would like to say that to overclockers' disappointment Morgan's potential appeared quite low, which makes us consider the new core an intermediate stage between the older Spitfire and the new 0.13micron Appaloosa, due in mid 2002.
