Ok... so heres the deal..... i have what i think could be an incorrectly labelled amd athlon xp 2400+..... this runs at ~2.00GHz while a mate's 2600+ only runs at ~ 1.75GHz. I thought this was a tad weird..... and when one of my friend's parents bought him a brand new pentium 4 3.2GHz he wanted to test how much faster his ran than mine (in MIPS). The results were quite interesting... his was running at about 3400 MIPS, while mine was running at around 5700 MIPS. These results were intruiging... so i tested it against several other systems, including another p4 3.2GHz. It outperformed systems which are supposed to be half as fast again, by nearly half as fast again. What is going on? is it something to do with my FSB? the external cpu speed is set at 133MHz in bios. Can someone advise me on what is happening here? i suspect that my cpu has been incorectly labelled, (if you dont know how this could have happened look in the overclocking amd athlon XP section).
