Default AMD Speed Equation?

What is the speed equation for figuring out how fast an amd processor is in Intel measurement. I have an AMD Athlon XP 1600+ (1.4ghz) Palomino Core, what is it's equivalent in Intel terms?

The 1600+ is equivalent to a P4 running at 1.6Ghz. Likewise, A 2200+ is equal to a P4 running at 2.2Ghz

So what is the equation? Is it all in the label name? 1600+ =
1600.00 move the period over three spaces and that's the intel equivalent?

There is no equation because different processors compare differently. They don't have a common interval.

yeah, like we all know that a 2.0 GHz IBM/Apple G5 processor would OWN OWN OWN OWN a 3.6GHz P4
