Default cpu overclock

If you have a cpu running at 2.4 ghz like a 3400 would overclocking to 2.8 mean its better then a fx series cpu, or is there other factors in them being better besides speed.

A 2.8GHz venice would beat out a FX-55 because of the added SSE3 instructions and the overall increase in speed...but clock to clock I believe the FX would be superior...in other words a FX-57 San diego core at 2.8GHz would beat out a regular AMD64 San Diego core chip OC'd up to 2.8GHz...just superiour architecture
