I just purchased an AMD 64 4000+ cpu with runs at 2.4 GHz. How do I compare it to the intel cpu's out there? I thought the 4000+ number meant it ran at 4.0GHz compared to an Intel but my buddy tells me thats not right. I have overclocked it to 2.7 MHz but I still have no way to compare it to an intel. How do you compare it to an intel besides using a benchmark program?

Yes, the 4000+ denotes that it will run equivalent to a 4GHz Pentium. There is a program called Central Brain Identifier that will give you the Pentium equivalent rating of your processor when overclocked. You can download it from here

Of course, the number doesn't indicate what kind of Intel it is as a comparison. 5 series and 6 series differ, and of course, there's the Pentium D Dual Cores.

Take your speed in mhz (2700), multiply by op's per cycle (9) and divide by Intels op's per cycle (6) So... 2700x9=24300/6=4050 makes it around a 4.05ghz intel.

Thanks Pjlietz, this is what I was looking for. My question to you (myself being new) is how did you come up with the op's per cycle? i have looked in CPU-Z and not seen this number. Is this a standard number for AMD Athlon 64's?

I got the info off the forum awhile ago. I'm sure it is the standard for All AMD's and Intel P4's. P3's and the P-m chips do 9 op's as well.

Multiply your amd speed by 1.5 and you get the intel speed.

Yessir


Amd is 9 operation and Intel is 6, for now at least.

Also, that math equation, isn't 100% correct, what I always do is say "Mines equal to a little more than a 4.0 Intel
"

how do I compare AMD to Intel?....
Intel is more expensive, and better for multitasking...but now with the dual core AMD's, I dont think Intel is better for anything other than decreasing your bank account by a larger figure...
