Now, the cpu is an AMD Semptron 3100+. The actual preformance is measure by a couple factors, mainly the frequency it works at. In this case it works at 1.8GHz. Now, sure, it looks low compared to intel's, but intels aren't very efficient with their preformance thus they need to have beefed out working frequencies. The cpu you're getting is equivalent to an Intel P4 3.1GHz cpu. So that's plenty fast.
Uhh wrong. That AMD sempron is like getting an Intel Celeron at around 2.8-3.2 ghz, you cant compare P4's to semprons.
Anyways you cannot just say that it is 3100+ it is compared to a 3.1ghz intel. Intel beats AMD in certain areas, where in other areas it is the other way around.
