Thats completely WRONG.
The rating system is simply designed so that its easier to tell the difference between processors in the SAME category, for example Socket 939 Athlon 64s.
They can not even be compared with other platforms of the same manufacturer, for example Socket 939 and Socket 754.
And they DEFINITELY have NOTHING to do with GHz ratings!
