There starting to popup here and there, nothing new I guess, and AMD's roadmap is still on target besides the 1 month delay of T-bred.

Duron 1.4GHz (200FSB) Morgan
Duron 1.5GHz (200FSB) Morgan
Duron 1800+ 1.53GHz (266FSB) Appaloosa

EDIT: I have updated the Roadmap with more accurate results which were given to me this morning over an email. Hope this helps everyone clear the air.:rolleyes:

That cant be right. The duron 1500+ would never be 1533 MHz. Thats rated slower than the chip is clocked. And why on earth would the 1.6 GHz duron be rated only 1600+. This defies all logic if thats what AMD is doing.

actualy it kinda make sence if u think about it... amd made their model number system useing the tbird as the base line right? well maybe they are saying the duron at 1.6ghz is as good as or better then a tbird at 1.6ghz?? i dunno but to me it seems right...

i am with Bender on this one.
Something does seem right.
such as...

Duron 1500+ 1.53GHz (266FSB)

maby they would be right if you removed 100Mhz from the clock
so it would look somethign like this: Duron 1500+ 1.43GHz (266FSB)

but a model 1500+ Duron running at 1533Mhz....
AMD would not do something like that.

think of this tho..... do u think a duron clocked at 1.43ghz could compeat with a tbird at 1.5ghz? because if i understand the model number thing then thats what u would be saying

but my question now is why would AMD compeat with its own CPU's?
Wouldnt They be pushing the Durons agains Celerons?
And a P4 Celeron is just around the corner.

well dont u think it would be an eazy way of phaseing out the older tbirds with newer xp's and morgan durons? and as for the p4 celeron vs morgan duron i would think that it will be about the same as the xp vs northwood thing going on now the p4 being only slightly ahead with a huge ghz number

That what I think....

The P4 celeron will have a huge Hz lead on the Duron.
With the duron having faster MHz....
So the Duron uses the PR thing, just the the XP's, and that is why i dont think 1533Mhz makes sense as a model 1500+
Maybe a 1600+ but not a 1500+

ok so i read this thread again and most importantly i read
"The important thing to remember here is that the performance of the T-Bird 1.4 was the base line used by AMD for all of the XP ratings and that all revisions were to go up by approximately 3%"

if thats correct then the duron 1500+ will be about 3% faster then the tbird 1.4...... but we also know that an xp 1500+ will beat a p4 1.5ghz most of the time.... well then wouldent the duron 1500+ also since it is useing the same rateing? if so then u have a nice comparison of a low end cpu vs high end with the low end comeing out on top..... i think lol i'm not quite sure but take a look at that thread silver did alot of research on the model numbers of xp and its an intresting read :)

OK, the cat is out of the bag!, after two email's arrived for me, one from Inquirer and the other from X-bit, The Duron 1800 will run @ 1.53GHz just like the XP1800 does. Case closed.

Duron 1.4GHz
Duron 1.5GHz
Duron 1800+ @ 1.53GHz

So the Duron is based on the Morgan 1.5GHz processor.

There is going to be a 1.5GHz Duron, but AMD wont put on the PR rating on till the Duron gets the Appaloosa core & 266FSB. Finally, its not so confusing after all.
