I was just wondering what Athlon processor is equal to a 2.8 Ghz Intel Pentium 4 processor.

Yes, but AMD processors can run better with slower speeds. The FX-57 is 2.8 GHz, but that destroys all the single-core Intels at the moment.

The 2800+ is using the intel equivalency rating which places it equal to the 2.8Ghz P4.

True, its amd's naming/ operating frequency scheme.

In other words they planned it to be like that. Amd are Smart Farts.

2800+ would equal a pentium 4 with 2.8ghz, warriorscot is correct.

Its the way amd designed it to be, the memory controller on the amd's are so much faster than that of a intel. Im not a fanboy of either also as I currently have a intel. Intel does better at certain things, amd does better at games overall. Intels are still good at games but the reason amd is better is because an amd doesnt have to take a longer route to communicate. The operating frequency of the amd may seem low but in reality it keeps up with the equivalent of an intel with the + number given by the processor.
