Athlon XP MHz Ratings Confusing

in comparision, the p4 does 6 ipc so the 2ghz would do 12 x 10^9. I guess my main gripe is that SPEC is being bandied about (even by the CPU manufacturers) as a measurement of pure CPU performance, when clearly, it is not.

It's similar to various private tidbits about yourself. Thus the fastest 1.53GHz Athlon XP compares to and can even beat out a 1.8GHz Pentium 4, but a 1.9GHz or 2.0GHz Pentium 4 would still benchmark much more favorably, and With a combination of a conservative "ratin" and a very well performing chip, I think AMD will be successful with their new offering. Why did the old "PR" system fail?

I don't see how this is in any way the least bit misleading. Oh well. Its not right.

this sounds like a desperation move on amd's part, but after the release of clawhammer, it will make more sense. try something new and innovative (like your chips are). If thats what they want they should develop a consistent fair benchmark, ala Tom's Hardware, and convince hardware manufacturer's to display it on thier boxes.

SPEC benchmarks are designed to be purely CPU intensive, although I'm sure they stress the memory subsystem somewhat as well. One of Intel's advantages to this point has been the performance of the motherboards they create. That clears it up once and for all. Like you say, I don't require anything more CPU intensive than the occassional MS FlightSim (to keep my piloting skills honed before I get my PPL), so will go for a

The German magazine c't did a test of the Athlon XP CPU recently and tested on two different motherboards (Gigabyte and Asus, I think) - the spec scores different wildly!

Many people will think AMD is being deceitful in order to hide some shortcoming in their chips. It wasn't really because the clock speed didn't match the model number.

Ironically, AMD's own pioneering Pentium rival, the K5, introduced in 1996, helped stop this sensible idea before it could get started.

This is dishonest on AMD's part. i got an e-mail from upgradesource with a link to their athlon pricing, including a full line of athlon xp chips. I don't necessarily see the reasons why this rating is masked on the XP processors... Cycling Two cyclists ride together on 10-speed bikes.

that's about it. 1.4 ghz is faster than 1.2ghz, finished. Even though the Pentium 4 executes fewer instructions in each cycle, the overall higher cycling speeds more than make up for the loss of efficiency.
