when an amd is for instance an amd 64 3300 what ghz is that? i have an amd 2800 that runs at 2.08ghz, does that mean the 3300 will run at 3.03ghz?

No

The AMD model number refers to a comparrison to intel

so for example the AMD 3300+ means that if you were to compare it to an intelk then it would be like comparing it to a 3.3 GHz machine
but the AMD clock rate is much much slower

the model number has nothing to do with the actual clock speed you have to find that information seperatly


hope that helps a little

this info is wrong...

So a 6000+ is as good as a 6ghz intel chip? does such a thing exist that they could even test that? (answer: no... at least not without ridiculous overclocking). And a 1.83ghz Core 2 Duo will destroy almost every AMD in benchmarking... not just the 1830+ and lower (even though there is no such thing as an 1830+).

the numbers are just that... numbers. Just like NVIDIA and ATI number their GPUs, AMD numbers their CPUs. Intel also numbers their CPUs... for example a Core 2 Duo E6600.

Yup, his post was right way back when AMD first started competing with Intel, so they could be easily compared. Now days they mean nothing.

yup, and the following statement was right in the 16th century:

the world is flat.

:whistling:

The Athlon XP (as well as the Athlon 64) PR rating scheme is not intended to be anything more than a comparison to the same family of processors, and not a direct comparison to Intel or any other company's processor speeds.
