AMD 3000+ and P4 3.0??

  1. Are they basically the same thing?? I was just wondering because the amd cpu runs at about 2.0 ghz and the p4 runs at 3.0 ghz. I dunno this is confusing to me, why dont they just say 2000+ for the amd, argh, it doesn't make sense.

    AMD chips do more work per clock cycle than Intel chips so a 2ghz AMD is equivilent to a 3 ghz Intel chip. The only real difference is AMD chips are better for gaming.
