AMD's Duron to hit 1GHz

Author: JT Smith

ZDNET: "The chipmaker announced a 1.1GHz Athlon 4 and a 900MHz Duron--both for notebook PCs--and
said Compaq Computer will offer the new mobile chips in its Presario 1200 line. AMD also
announced its intent to ship a 1GHz desktop Duron later this quarter.

AMD's newest Athlon 4 represents a 100MHz jump in speed from the first chip in that series,
introduced in May at up to 1GHz. A 1.2GHz Athlon 4 is expected in the fourth quarter."
