I want to build a CPU with AMD proc. but I cant figure out how to determine AMD clock speed because it is not provided in tech. specs.

Dear Cast,

Intel and AMD are very close to dueling face to face at this point. I have two Intel's and one AMD computer now. The AMD is quicker in games but the Intel has faster point to point. It's all opinion. You can really tell in the low end systems though.

AMD has Intel by the balls at that point! It gets foggy when you go into high end stuff. Work with both and make a selection is my suggestion. :thumbsup:

Lets us know,

Dear Cass,

Just look at this link from C-NET it tells us all we need to know right now about AMD VS Intel Dual Core processors. http://reviews.cnet.com/4520-10442_7-6389077-9.html?tag=btn

on the other hand, P4s seem to excell at audio/video, and amd seems to work better with gaming and engineering apps.

While AMD does make excellent processors for gaming they go above and beyond that. Intel may be better at encoding audio & video, but, AMD seems to perform equally or better than intel in other tasks. My recommendation would be to go AMD. They're cheaper, run cooler, and perform better. If you want to know the clock speed just head over to newegg.com and look at the technical specs, it should be listed there. Keep in mind AMD isn't like Intel and they go for performance over clock speeds.

Video Encoding

According to this Intel no longer has the edge on video encoding.

Hi CASTIGLIANO, looks like you got some prompt responses, unfortunately it doesn't look like anyone addressed your question regarding clock speed. Actually the spec do show the clock speed,the clock speed is the same thing as the CPU's operating frequency. Example: AMD Athlon 64 2800+ Newcastle 800MHz FSB Socket 754 Processor Model ADA2800AXBOX

64 bit Support: Yes
Cooling Device: Heatsink and Fan
Hyper-Transport Support: Yes
L1 Cache: 64KB+64KB
L2 Cache: 512KB
Multimedia Instruction: MMX, SSE, SSE2, 3DNOW! Professional
Operating Frequency: 1.8GHz
Process Type: 0.13 Ám
Series: Athlon 64
Voltage: 1.5V

The operating frequency here is 1.8Ghz, which means that the clock speed is 1.8GHz.

The FSB at 800MHz is another spec entirely, FSB is short for Front Side Bus. You can find more info by googling these topics, there is a great deal of good information out there, read on and get back to us with any questions you have. There's usually someone here with the knowledge and patience to help.
