Ok so I have read this sticky The Truth About Processor Performance (a.k.a AMD GHz vs. Intel GHz)
but it still leave a lot of loose ends.
For one example there is a difference between a sempron and an athlon that have been named the same, ie "sempron 2000+ vs athlon 2000+"
The athlon performs better so that means they can't both be equivalent to an intel at 2.0GHz.
My other questions are:
1. What is up with the athlon fx series' naming system? How do you tell what there performance is?
2. Same question for opterons? I know practically nothing about these things.
3. Finally the intel core 2 duo processors. I am told they have the best performance, but other than testing them how can you know? does the part of their name "6600, 6400" ect.. mean that they perform like a 6.6GHz and 6.4GHz?
