whats going to be faster, Duron 1800 or athlon xp-2000?

Simple question, but I would like an explanation as to why one would be faster than the other.

1 Solution
No question - the AthlonXP 2000+ will be faster.  The Duron is basically an Athlon core with less L2 cache - the Duron has 64K, and the AthlonXP has 256K.  Combined with a higher speed rating, the AthlonXP will be faster.

Duron origins

CPU comparison (note the Durons are slower than equally rated Athlons)
