Default AMD DURON 1800+ specs

I need to know if the AMD Duron 1800 has the SSE instruction set. I need this to run Adobe Premiere pro as I only have a 1.1ghz athlon right now and it does not have the SSE instruction which the software needs.

Thanks for your help.

Well my old AMD Duron 1.2GHz had the SSE instruction set. So the Duron 1.8GHz should have it too considering that it’s a later model and has a better core than the 1.2GHz Duron.

Also here’s some additional info on the Duron 1.8GHz.
