processor and an AMD processor?
I know for example that a 2.5Ghz Intel is not equivalen to a 2.5Ghz Amd
processor, so what should i do to compare these processors?
The number of notes played with a piano are finite, but infinite are
the number of melodies.
Re: Amd and Intel comparation
They use different architectures and thus you cannot simply
apply some kind of MHz equation, because it will not remain
constant but vary per application. So, you need to consider
your most demanding, and/or more common applications and
seek benchmarks of those (including similar if not same
version of the application- an important detail often
overlooked) to get a relative comparsion to derive some kind
of rough MHz:MHz comparison- which of course is only
applicable to that application or others randomly having
same benefit or detriment per each CPU design or
optimizations or (whatever other reason).
