Well, you gotta define faster.

Plus, clock frequency doesn't nessesarily determine the speed of the work the processor does, if thats what he means...

-My dad's Jeep with a 4-liter engine accelerates slower and has a lower top speed than a new Porsche Cheyanne with a similar displacement engine.
You're the guy from that hamburger train, right?

ok an Athlon XP 2500+ that runs at 1.67GHZ can perform about as well as 2.5GHZ

the Athlon XP can complete more instructions per clock cycle than a Pentium 4 can; this also applies to Athlon 64's and most Mac processors
