Indeed. ALso another reason for AMD processors using a lower clock synth is because they are MORE EFFICIENT. They use 14 pipelines, dual cores use 12, compared to your Pentium4's 31.. yes... 31 pipelines... imagine this as an example
You and a friend leave the same place in identical cars. Your friend takes a 31 (pipelines) mile long road driving at 26 (2.6GHz) MPH. You go on a 14 mile road driving 22 (2.2GHz) MPH. Who gets to the destination first? oh.. that would be YOU.
