If amd hasn't already, maybe they should actually put on their processor box that 2500+,3000+ etc, is just a performance rating.
Many of my friends who have amd, were stunned when they actually realized their 2800+ was not a 2.8 ghz.
A7V600 KT600 AMD 2500+ Barton OC to 3200+ Western Digital 80gig 7200 HD (8mb) 512MB GEIL DDR 400 ATI Radeon 9600XT (535mHz / 642mHz) Antec True Power 350W LED(+2LED case fans)
It might be a good idea to make it a bit more obvious to the average buyer. Intel has been winning the Mhz war even though they would get absolutly blown away at the same Mhz as any newer AMD. I wonder if there's a site that could underclock a P4C (king of the Northwoods right now) to say 1467Mhz (1700+ speeds) and see what happens. Better yet clock one to 1.8Ghz and see who wins, 1.8Ghz Barton or 1.8Ghz P4C.
