No never compare different lines of CPU's by their clock speeds alone. I repeat don't do it becuase there are many many more variables that play in the speed. For instance a 2.14ghz Core 2 Duo is about the speed of a 2.5-2.6ghz AMD X2.
However the Core 2 Duo's overclock much better than the top AMD line.
