Duron

An early value line of 32-bit, Pentium-compatible CPU chips from AMD. Introduced in 2000 to compete with Intel's Celerons, Durons were pin compatible with AMD's Athlon chips, but had less cache and slower frontside buses. In desktop and mobile versions, Duron clock speeds ranged from 600 MHz to 1.8 GHz. The Duron family was superseded by Sempron in 2004. See Sempron and AMD.

The Intel Architecture 32-bit (IA-32) PC marketplace currently breaks down quite nicely into three segments: 1) budget or value PCs built around the Intel Celeron and AMD Duron CPUs (less than $1,000), 2) mainstream systems built around the Intel Pentium III and AMD Athlon ($1,000 to $1,500), and 3) the performance market built around the Pentium 4 and the higher-speed Athlons (over $1,500).
