athlon vs pentium

Can anyone point me in the direction of a decent website that shows the performance of the above for comparison purposes.

For example, how fast (in ghz) would an Athlon XP3000 actually be?

Here is AMD's own comparison commissoned from Price Waterhouse.

Here is their page detailing raw GHz

Raw GHz is not a good comparison when comparing different technology eg AMD & Intel (or for that matter different Intel technologies)

Oops, try click here for that second one.

As GrahamP has said gigahertz is not the be all and end all. AMD have got a bit of stick from Intel about their processor speeds but the thing is its true the 2400+ Athlon does run at the equivalent of the Intel 2.4ghz.
