What's better a Clawhammer core or the Newcastle core for the AMD 64 3400+? What's the equivalent of the P4 3.4GHz in AMD?

AMD provides tons of specs on all their products. You'd do well to read them before throwing money into the 64bit hole.

Most 3400 labeled AMD procs are comparable to 3.4Ghz Intels. The only real test for equivalence, though, is to read some benchmarks comparing the two.

Yeah, I agree. Just see if you can find some benchmark reviews to see how they stack up. There is really no set in stone comparison like 3400+ is the same as a p4 3.4 ghz. Now that AMD has a 64 bit version and an XP and Intel has the extreme editions and the prescott processors and the regular northwood....there are so many options and things to compare. Just look around.
