Ghz don't matter, it's the cores they use and how they work that matters. That's one of the reasons why AMD is kicking Intel's ass
EDIT>>> The FX-55 uses the Clawhammer and the 4000+ uses the Sledgehammer core. Performance between them 2 are barely any different, except for the price tag
The only diffference is that the 4000+'s multipliers are locked, therefore hindering its OC'ing performance. However, the FX-55's multipliers are factory unlocked, so you can get more out of it when you OC. Sorry, nice try though.
