I saw a topic here somewhere, showing an article that compares AMD vs Intel. It said there that the numbers on AMD like 3700, 3500, 3200, are like the actual speeds that those AMDs compare to Intel in their Ghz. Well I mean like AMD 3200 is supposedly just as fast as an Intel Pentium 3.2 Ghz

Thats what that article said. Even tho the bus speed is lower on AMD, it doesnt always mean its slower. Plus AMD is more energy efficient. Oh, and dont forget you can overclock it like crazy!

The 3700+ is probably about like a 3.4ghz Intel. Maybe a 3.6ghz.

Id put money on the 3.4ghz. What is that.. Like a 650, Prescott?

Yeah....

Advocate, there is no way to directly compare them. Although, thats true for lower end processors, say the 3.0ghz intel, and the 3000+/3200+ amd.
