Athlon XP MHz Ratings Confusing

And no one who buys a car fixates on horsepower above all else. Interesting parallels between the RDRAM technology and Intel vs AMD and SDRAM if you ask me =) Re:will the trickery work?

That's bad for AMD; they need a price edge to win over vendors.

It failed, but AMD's second try at a Pentium rival, the K6 series, succeeded admirably, and has led to AMD's current line of outstanding processors.

So far, they're calling their 1.53ghz model an 1800. Back in the days of Cyrix, MHZ ment a lot more, and Cyrix was a lot less realistic than AMD is being.

Even though the Pentium 4 executes fewer instructions in each cycle, the overall higher cycling speeds more than make up for the loss of efficiency.
