I see you are new here and have gone on a "posting spree"... Welcome.

Clockspeed has not been the performance determining factor for years. Instructions Per Clock cycle, (IPC) is what determines overall system performance. AMD's CPUs since the Athlon was intro'ed (4) years ago have significantly higher IPC than Intel PIII, P4, Prescott, etc. CPUs. Thus AMD CPUs only need to run at approximated 2/3rds the clockspeed of an Intel CPU to provide equal performance. So AMD introduced the Performance Rating, (PR) so consumers would understand which model CPUs were comparable in performance. At this point in time, AMD's products are simply the fastest X86 processors on the planet, so enjoy.

BTW, as I explained to you in another thread in the forum, the PR rating of 2600+ is NOT the clockspeed of the CPU. It is a Performance Rating that you can expect for comparison to an Intel P4 2.6 Gig. in reality.

Overclock depends on alot of factors, some chips will OC better then others, for example some AXP 2500+'s can be OCed to 2.2 GHz with a simple FSB switch to 200, other 2500+'s will require a vcore increase to attain the same speed, the same goes for Intel processors, not to mention your mainboard, memory & powersupply also play a big part in overclocking.
