It is performance rated at 3 GHz, meaning it performs the same as a 3GHz Pentium 4.

Yeah, it shouldn't have said 3GHz.

The 3000 chips are supposed to be 2.14 or something like that. My 2000 is 1.67.

Windows may see it as a AMD XP 3000, but not at 3.0ghz.

The AMD PR number is NOT a reference for how it compares to an intel this used to be the case back with early processors but not anymore.
