Default Please clear this up for me...

My friend seems to think that an athlon xp processor at 1.8ghz would be faster than a p4 2.8ghz w/ hyperthreading. Will someone please tell him that he is out of his mind so he can read it from someone else

could someone simply state taht a 1.8ghz processor is not as fast as a 2.8 , its common sense but he needs to hear (see) someone else say it

an XP2200+ running at 1.8ghz would be obviously slower than a p4 2.8ghz C or B version, heck it may be slower than the A version. a p4 2.2Ghz version B is comparable to a xp2200.

I don't have anything for sale but my gun is as follows:

Tippmann 98 Custon
Response Trigger (makes it fully auto)
200 Round Electronic Hopper
Scope
14" Progressive Barrel

Not the greatest setup in the world but pricewise, nothing beats it
