    I just read this and found it very interesting.

    Seems to me a lot of us lately have been falling prey to Megahertz hype when begging, pleading and screaming at Apple procure faster chips. Even Intel realizes that MHZ are just one measure and often not the best one.

    I can just picture those blue guys crying in an advert and then these other guys with yellow costumes come flying in on laptops and smashing into a big 2Ghz sign, smashing it to pieces.

    It's good that intel are admitting their chips are inefficient at last, If they'd just carried on with the Pentium 3 and added DDR to the design they wouldn't have had the numbers to compete with the Athlons performance at the same clockspeed so I guess the Pentium 4 was designed to LOOK fast and now they've made a chip that actually performs fast they've got a lot of explaining to do.

    ha ha :D

    I wonder if Mac people will begin to "buy into" the mhz myth, if it begins to favor them some time soon.

    That's nice and all, and a pie in the face of Intel, but it also means that its faster than the chips Apple currently uses by an even larger margine.

    I certainly hope the Power4 kicks ass!
