    Cheers just a few questions - so they must be coded in different ways on how they perform - are pentiums generally faster than AMDS?

    I thought DDR ram and Pentium processors were different things! lol What relevance is the ram to the processor?

    What is cycling four times and what is it transferring four times?

    Any recommended sites to look up information on the net?

    Cheers for the help toolbox :)

    thats actually true
    no no no I'm saying that DDR ram uses up and down cycle to transfer data...the P4 does it 4 times every cycle but because of this it can transfer less data on each clock. (because it uses 4 clocks)...mayb i said something different his time LOL

    I don't know what's worse.. That you said what you said the first time, or that you are sticking by it. :) Part of it is right, but some of it isn't...

    IPC = Instructions per cycle.

    An Athlon/Duron completes 9 ipc.

    A P4 on the otherhand completes just 6 ipc.

    its good enough, I dont see you givin an explanation

    Wiggo:
    Its FSB * IPC = Performance Rating? or MHZ * IPC

    I honestly couldn't be bothered doing your research for you, but I'll give you a few pointers:

    - Pentium 4 is called Pentium 4 due to natural progression, not because it is 'quadpumped'.
    - Any CPU only has 1 clock. It just depends on how that clock is used. For example, what Wiggo said about IPC. That's the whole reason that comparing clockspeeds between different processors is a stupid thing to do. They both do different things in different styles.
    - In just 10 seconds on Google, I came up with <a href="http://www.lostcircuits.com/cpu/xp_1800+/">this</a>. Read it and find out what you are looking for.
