AMD’s turning the crank once more with their Celeron killer (and, IMHO, Pentium III killer), the Duron. They’ve now released the 900MHz verison. From the AMD press release:

SUNNYVALE, CA-APRIL 2, 2001-AMD today announced the availability of the
900MHz AMD Duron(tm) processor, its highest performance AMD Duron processor
to date. Designed to meet the needs-today and tomorrow-of value-conscious
home and office desktop computer users, the 900MHz AMD Duron processor
enhances AMD’s processor lineup, which delivers a full spectrum of
innovative solutions.

Of course, Durons have been hitting 900MHz and above, without AMD’s sanction, for a while now. See our Duron vs. T-bird comparison for tests of a Duron at speeds up to 950MHz, alongside Athlon T-bird scores for comparison.

If you feel the need for reviews of the AMD-sanctioned Duron 900, you can give these a shot:

I’m sure there are more reviews to come. Durons will be priced at $90, $111, and $129 for the 800MHz, 850MHz, and 900MHz models, respectively.
