it all depends on the batch and stepping.
MOST PIII 700's hit 933 easy, 1050 with a little luck...
Many 650 hit 1100, most about 900 MHz...

and i would go with the P3 any day over a Duron.
It would be faster, and you can run it on a VIA free chipset

I dont really think if you posted this question in the AMD forum you would get a different answer....

Its a fact the P3 is a faster CPU than a Duron.
And how much they overclocked in thier day, well look at the results in the CPU database, so no bias their.

If it was an Althon vs a Pentium, then i could see the bias showing...

but as its a duron....
that would be like asking if a Celeron is faster than a athlon and say your bias for picking the Athlon
