Under Content Creation Winstone 2000 you can see that the Thunderbird, clock for clock, is faster than the older Athlon which we already knew. So if you're choosing between getting a lower clocked Thunderbird or a faster K75 Athlon the above chart should help you out a bit.

You can also see that the Duron at 600MHz is coming in around the same speed as the Athlon 600 and the Pentium III 600 on a BX platform. If you're not sure about the overclocking potential of the Duron (or whether or not you're even going to be able to overclock it) and you currently have something like a Pentium III 600E, you may want to stick with your current setup.
