cuz ghz mhz dont matter. Intel recently admitted this fact and stopped refering to their CPU's by the ghz. They now use numbers like 514 and such.

Just remember its actual performance not ghz.

yes.

and amd64 2800+ runs at 1.8ghz.
And it keeps up with a P4 2.8 ghz.
a whole 1 ghz difference, but it's nothing.

That's part of it. It aslo matters how each CPU proccesses data. AMD has a far more efficient way of carrying out tasks then Intel does.
