athlons names like 2600 2400 3200 etc. are based on equivilants to intel, or were in the begining at least, the 3200 is actually 2.2ghz but is suposedly equivelant to a 3.2ghz intel processor, that is right yeah?

its actually based on the first core of the athlon (thunderbird?) something like that. A 3200+ XP would be as fast as a 3.2 ghz athlon. This should be in its own thread though...

^^^ might not be right

but more or less, youre right, its a marketing thing so that AMD buyers don't feel like they're getting a far superios chip.

athlons are better chips for games the 3200xp will be same speed if not a bit a=faster than the 3200 intel chips that the way it works im sure, its the fact that the intels were higher ghz but amd were better chips and could run faster than their ghz
