Re: Comparing cpu's under $100
No you don't combine speed like that. It's just two cores each running at 1.8GHz....
It's also not just because it's dual core. Even though it has a lower stock speed, I believe they can do more instructions per clock, than a P4 at 3.2GHz, making them more efficient. I also believe they consume less power than the P4, as well. This E2160, can overclock really well too.
