An AMD 2200 runs at 1.8Ghz. I work it out that 3200 is 2.6Ghz....TT

due to the cpu's THE TERMINATOR compared are different cores it doesnt work out.

Hi Again folks, something just occurred to me. Is a Pentium 3GHz a true speed? Thanks Gill

pentiums describe their actual speed, athlons describe their equivelant speed.

  jonnytub 15:19 14 Aug 2004

intel 3.0ghz chips don't run 3.0ghz that is the speed it has broken so they advertise as 3.0ghz dunno about amd.amd amd advertise by e.g amd athlon 2200+ this means it will go higher than 1800mhz.i read this info from personal computer world

The Athlon 2200+ will run at speeds up to 1.8Ghz - it will only run faster if it is overclocked.

As has been said already Athon choose their naming convention to give customers an indication of the processors equivilant intel clock speed.

ie the AMD 1.8GHz Athlon is the equivilant of the Intel 2.2Ghz.
