Athlon, XP, MP. Can some one tell me how these Processors rank in speed. I use Athlon , I want to know about XP and MP Processors. I know that the XP is of the Duron Family, what about the MP.

The Athlon MP is basically an Athlon XP that has been tested/validated to run in a dual-CPU configuration - it's targeted for Dual-CPU workstations.
Furthermore, unlike their Athlon XP-counterparts, ALL Athlon MPs have a 133/266MHz FSB.

The Athlon XP is targeted at the Desktop-segment and will NOT run in a dual-CPU configuration(atleast it won't without physical modification of the CPU).

The Duron is targeted at the Value-segment.
This means it sells at a very low price and does not perform as good as an Athlon XP or MP. Also, Durons have only 64KB L2-cache(an Athlon XP/MP has 256 or 512KB) and are running a 100/200 or 133/266 MHz FSB.

Btw, the Duron is more like an offspring of the Athlon(XP) family than the other way around
