2.2ghz x 9 = 19.8 amd speed
3.3ghz x 6 = 19.8 intel speed
Very cool stuff. Formulae like this let things fall into perspective better. Now it'll be easier for me to compare Intel and AMD CPUs. Granted, it's probably more complex, it's a foundation.

It gets a little easier to look at if you do this: take the AMD speed, multiply by 9, then divide by 6. So we look at this example, ill use my chip speed because I like the way it looks we'll round it up to 2.7ghz.

2.7*9 = 24.3
iloveamd24.3/6 = 4.05

A 4.05ghz intel would match a 2.7 AMD. now imagine that people here have clocked AMDs to 3.1 or 3.2 or higher. For my chip I paid $146. $146 is not much when you get the equal performance of a 4ghz intel. AMD all the way!

Aren't certain cores better at OCing than others? I've heard that a Venice core is the best Athlon 64 CPU core to OC with. Is this true? If so, why is this?

Yes, this is very true. some AMD chips are more likely to overclock than others. My chip is the Venice core. The 3700 Sandiego core is also a good choice for overclocking, as well as the Opterons. Usually a chip can do more, but for whatever reasons, the manufacturer decides to set the clocks on some chips lower. A lot of times this could be because they want to sell a lesser performance chip, at cheap prices that a lot of people will buy. Overclockers are the minority of computer users, so usually lost profits due to overclockers are negligible. There may be other reasons behind this, but this is what I have gathered.

That makes complete sense. I was thinking along those same lines. Good observation and information.

Yup I paid 240 or 260 so somthing like that for my 3700 and I have at at 2.85, and could probley take it to 3.0ghz if I wanted to, so if you do the math 4.27ghz intel, and this intel runs at 3.8 but cost $643

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819116190

even if it could oc to 4.27 or higher (I can take my 3700 to 3.0, but with looser timings) I would have a slight advantage in GAMES as long as it wasn't a crazy amount faster.

Or just multiply 2.7 by 1.5.

All you have to do is multiply your AMD clock times 1.5

EDIT: LOL Gnarly got here 1 minute before me

2.4 x 1.5 = 3.6

Wow! This stuff just keeps getting more simple!

Please, someone tell me abou a Ctrl + # key I can press to instantly OC my entire system while keeping it under warranty!
