CoolTechZone.com has chosen to dig deeper into the MHz myth that is really confusing so many out there. If you would like to more about how a 2,2 Ghz CPu can be just as fast as a 3,0 GHz I can really recommend reading theis piece of work.
”Most, if not all, of you have read or been in heated debates over why or why not higher clocked microprocessors are better than their ”comparable” competition. Just why is it that so many people stand behind their arguments about a 2.4GHz processor outperforming a 3.4GHz processor overall? Also, why do benchmarks sometimes show lower clocked processors beating higher clocked processors in some tests? I thought gigahertz and megahertz determined a processor’s performance… Well, you’d be surprised if you are one who thought that.”
