Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) Thursday unveiled the brand name it has chosen for its next generation of low-cost microprocessors for consumer PCs: Duron. The chip was formerly code-named Spitfire. The processor will be positioned against larger rival Intel's Celeron in the market for sub-$1000 (about £620) PCs.

This week AMD has also revealed it will launch a new mobile processor in the second half of this year, code-named Corvette.
