There's no conversion table. It's actually an old, old article talking about the AMD rating system:

http://news.zdnet.co.uk/hardware/chi...2107456,00.htm

The model number AMD uses is some kind of a controversy. No one knows why they chose to name their processors like that and it is confusing the crap out of consumers.

Ahh... Hmm, too bad there's not a conversion table out there, because then I'm sure a lot of posts here could be answered with a simple link.
