Hi All,

    Why is a 3.6 GHz Intel processor lower in capabilities than a 2.6GHz AMD processor? I need to understand what a processor is and the meaning of the numbers. E.g. FSB, what number is ideal? Thanks in advance.

Hi Mustafe

First you need to understand what Hz (Hertz) is. It is the unit in physics for frequency. Hertz is the number of times per second something occurs. 10 Hz means something happens 10 times in a second. In a processor this means the number of clock cycles in a second.

While processor speed can be seen as a measure of how well it performs, this is not the case with different designs of processors. All other factors must be taken into consideration such as how much heat it produces. Overheating can damage the processor so it a great limitation on the processor's performance. Performance also depends on the width of data bus and cache architecture of the processor.

This processor 2.6GHz AMD has these features different than the 3.6Ghz intel processor. It has this characteristics that provide leading-edge performance if you are using 32-bit and 64 bit Operating System.

It integrate DDR2 memory controller which is needed for computer, plus it has this large on-die cache memory for browsing. Not to mention this hyper transport bus and it's cool-in-quiet technology that runs quietly when operating and it reduce power usage.

While the intel 3.60 Ghz is designed by Intel corporation, the largest chip manufacturer in the world. It is a microprocessor that use to process technology, and use for temporary storage are for commonly use to access data. It has high speed cached processor good for computer operation, has a cached size that can be measured in megabytes or kilobits.

The speed of this internal clock, a clock that dictate how fast it can process data. Its because of memory controller bus and it's specification is listed below.

FSB         Model     Clock  Speed    L2 Cache  Socket
800MHz Pentium 4 660   3.6GHz   2MB           LGA-775
