How many times faster, in terms of “clock speed” is the Pentium 4 than the first microprocessor?

First Microprocessor is : 400 kilohertz

Pentium 4 is : 3.60 GHz

The question here is not clock speed increase but rather instruction per cycle increase...which I have no idea...I would suspect a modern day processor to be several thousand times more powerful than earlier microprocessors

You also have to take into account things like cache size...memory bandwidth and size...GPU power etc
