The Ghz is 1000x Mhz (just like 1Gb=1000Mb) the "giga" means "one million=1000000). So, 2400Mhz=2,4Ghz. 2200Mhz is equal to 2,2Ghz not 3,2 Ghz. Why does intel sells Ghz and AMD Mhz? I don't know. Maybe it has to do with each company's merchandise/advertisement projects. But, it's all the same at the end.

QUOTE the "giga" means "one million=1000000
'Kilo' = 1 thousand = 1,000 = 10^3
'Mega' = 1 million = 1,000,000 = 10^6
'Giga' = 1 billion = 1,000,000,000 = 10^9
'Tera' = 1 trillion = 1,000,000,000,000 = 10^12
