GHz value vs. Performance

  jezzialli 19:54 08 Jun 2003

Can someone please explain what relevance the GHz value of a processor has when the performance is what actually matters?

In other words, why buy a P4 processor with a higher GHz value, when the Athlon (with a lower GHz value) produces a similar performance?

Thanks for any help!

you are right, it isnt all down to ghz. There are many things to take into consideration.
