Ok. Well, none of those posts really helped, for the most part. Any links to official articles, anyone?

I wasn't comparing intel to amd, those numbers just seem to be what most websites offer on standard type models.

So, the war of the gigahurtz is over, and the emphasis is on doing more at once instead of faster. Thas helped. I read something about bigger data pipes that handle more? I guess that was it, then?

My biggest confusion or problem though is I used to be able to measure a computer by the number of gighertz. But now, the number seems useless.. So now I'm looking for a reference or minimum benchmark to pit all other machines against. It doesn't seem to be just about the one number now. Now it's about the cache and all other sorts of more technical hardware attributes. New technology forces the layman to learn more..

Anyway, though, if anyone has a link they consider informative and relatively easy to get trhough, I'd appreciate it.
