Hmmmm..... nope. The clock speed of AMD cpu's and those of Intel cpu's cannot be directly compared. The Althon XP 3000+ may run at 2.17 ghz, but that does not mean it is the same speed as a 2.17 ghz Pentium 4. The Althon is actually MUCH faster than a Pentium 4 at the same clock speed. I'd say the XP 3000+ is about equal to a 2.8 ghz P4, in most respects. If you do a quick google search for "AMD vs. Intel", I am sure it will explain it better.

Hmmmm double nopes.....you need to re-investigate your stuff there DoomUK before you go acting like you know it all....you'd be right in saying that the 3000+ is more equivelant to a 3.0GHz not the other way around like you said....a 2.17GHz AMD would kill a 2.17GHz Intel.....the 3000+ is just a rough estimate...like D4RK said...it may be that of only a 2.8 not necessarrily 3GHz on the dot...but still....the point still remains that the AMD's do more work per cycle...so you can't compare the clockspeeds directly.

D4RK basically said everything correctly, but I wanted to re-inforce it even further muahahahaha

yeah, whoever told u should be "excommunicated" from the AMD community, ...saying a 2.17Ghz athlon is comparable to a 2.17Ghz Intel... how dare he think AMD's are that bad. *shudders*

OK, why is it then that when I run a Micro-Scope boot up disk (not sure which version), it tells me that my CPU is actually running at just over 1200mhz (166 fsb)?

I'm really curious ...

if you built your own pc, you have to set the clock speed and the multiplyer correct to the chip you have in the bios
