You did well.

Ive done similar things on ebay... emailing people about known or unknown falsifications in their auction descriptions...

I also have found out that if your to nice, they wont do anything, but if your to rude about it, they will get caught up in the frustration that is a result, and not with the topic at hand...

So yes, i agree, if you would like to, offer advice about descriptions and such, but it will work better if you can find a general middle ground in communicating, so the point gets across, and that the idea, in this case, the false cpu speed, is made very clear...

This by itself, is already a slippery slope in getting results from people. On top of this, i have seen a lot (more than usual) people on ebay selling things with descriptions that are unclear. I don't want to assume this, but from the broken English I come across in a lot of item descriptions, it seems that English is a 2nd language that is understood not so well...

So to sum it all up, by trying to help the situation, and clearing up some misunderstanding from the seller, you may very well be creating a a whole other mess...

props for trying to contact the seller about this 'false' advertising... Hope he replies...

It may almost be better to 'ask' the seller a question that can be viewed by others, so that you have a better chance at addressing the situation, and a more professional response is displayed...

This is almost the norm on ebay, especially on custom computers. People are willing to do anything to make a sale, sad world we live in where its ok to lie to make money.

That is excellent advice.

That is mainly the reason why i stopped using ebay. People always trying to play the system to scam, lie, cheat, steal....

This alone is the reason why i can partially understand why paypal is a mess... It has to be all setup to prevent this crap from happening, but there is never away to do it perfectly...

I got the name of my sig rig from brilliant ebay marketing.

Ok so I'm gonna play the devil's advocate here, whats wrong with saying its 4Ghz? honestly, you've got 2 technical processors each running at a clock speed of 2Ghz thus equalling a total of 4Ghz of computing power available to you. Now mind you that even the canmycomputerrunit? site that so many here like to use sums up the total of your cores and reports that as your clock speed.

It's no different than saying that the IBM blue gene computer can compute so many billions of instructions per second and runs at a certain equivelant speed of so many Ghz or probably even Thz even though its actually thousands of cores running as one system.

The point is that saying 2 proc's running at 2Ghz each gives you 4Ghz in performance is not incorrect. Is it the best way to represent it to a consumer? probably not, but its neither a lie nor incorrect either. Just another way of looking at it is all.

I might be wrong but for the claim to be correct, a single-core processor of the same architechture and cache size running at, let's say 6GHz would be on par with a 3GHz dual-core. I don't think this is the case.

Well I got a reply saying:

Quote:
Thank you for your advice and interest
Wow, I expect a bit more than that. Whether I have been successful or not, doesn't really matter. Its an interesting topic though.

In cars, its not like a V8 engine is twice the performance of a high-performance 4-pot.... ah screw the car analogies.
