The Whetstone test is very similar to the ZDNet FPU Mark test and the results show the same effect. The Athlon and Duron are neck and neck while the higher-clock speed of the overclocked Duron wins by a long shot.
This SiSoft test shows again that the similarity between the Duron and Athlon processors is very noticeable. Coming in only 5 points behind, the Duron offers a great performance rate for a lower cost. The 1 GHz Duron comes in well ahead of the other two results again; about 20% higher.
