Overall performance is great
None so far
I have been using Duron processors for about 3 years. My first was an 850 Mhz, and after a convincing jump start I moved up to 1.1 Ghz, then to 1.3 Ghz speed spectrum.
To give Intel a fair share of the product, I too was running side by side a P4 1.5 Ghz, and thus comparison was eminent between the Duron 1.1 Ghz and that of the Intel P4 1.5 Ghz.
It was frustrating to note that Duron gave Intel a clear run in terms of performance in gaming, notwithstanding the speed difference between AMD Duron 1.1 Ghz and Intel P4 1.5 Ghz. Other applications such as multitasking type Intel made a slight edge, but it was drowned by the overall performance of Duron.
From that time on my gaming shop PC numbers grew from 4 units to 18, all based on AMD products, and so far every thing is so good, and without any problem at all.
