    yea, but is it worth buying if your not intending to try and unlock the cache?

    Or would it be safer just to buy a slightly more expensive barton 2500+

    Just to reiterate my thoughts ...

    Using less of the L2 cache (64K vs 256/512) should enable them to run a little cooler and achieve higher clock speeds too. However going on the classic Duron days there's likely to be a 10% speed diff between an AthlonXP and a Duron, 15% between the Duron and a Barton. I wouldn't expect many Durons would do 2.5ghz or even 2.3ghz TBH. Even at 2.5ghz the Duron with 64k L2 would be on par in speed terms with a 2.25ghz TbredB or 2.15ghz Barton. At 2.3ghz it would be on par with 2.07ghz Tbred or 2.00ghz Barton. Of course there is a chance of enabling all 256k L2 cache on these new Durons but I bet VERY few will do it successfully (< 10%?) and even then it would probably negate the higher clock speeds. With TbredB starting under £40 and Barton for under £70 it's hard to think why you'd risk it really ...
