AMD's are very efficient when compared to Intel. Some 1.8ghz AMD's can compare to 3ghz P4's.

Yes basically. AMD confuses me with 3200's and then look at pentium 3.0 Someone should make a Ghz spreadsheet

Well of course GHz means SOMETHING.. .. It's one of the two main components of the efficiency formula..

Instructions/second = instructions/cycle x cycles/second

The cycles/second = GHz measure

AMD tends to have a higher "instructions/cycle" than Intel. It just so turns out that when u combine the two components, to get the same "Instructions/second", you only need a lower "cycles/second" for AMD..

But yeah. Both the "instructions/cycle" and the "GHz measure" are obviously important.

that's why AMD uses what's called a P-rating (Performance rating)
an AMD with a certain P-rating is roughly equivalent to a Pentium 4 of that many MHZ

AMD are far more forward thinking in this philosophy because problems arise the higher the frequency is pushed.

at the same time, Intel went backward in thinking when they introduced Netburst

haha yeah, and they are crawling back to their P3 architecture with the Pentium M

they had huge advertisments on the Pentium 4, but they don't tell people that a modified Pentium 3 is actually better
