OK, I was wondering something.
Most Intel processors are around 3ghz. But AMD is way less for the same price. Now, my brother said his 3500 is about equal to a 3.5ghz Intel. So are the models for AMD (4600, 3200, etc.) the same as Intel's operating frequency? Or is AMD just slow.

Try the CPU Charts on the following website: http://www23.tomshardware.com/cpu.html

The interactive CPU Charts provide a true performance comparison between AMD and Intel processors. They allow ambitious users as well as decision makers and dealers to compare their favorite products in 20+ benchmark disciplines.

In addition, the price/performance index enables you to find the best performance for your buck. This chart is updated daily with the latest product prices from TG Stores.

The charts have several unique features:

* Select your desired benchmark.
* Select two processor models, which will be highlighted on your results page.
* Check out the absolute and relative performance difference between selected models at the bottom of the page.
* Click on any bar within the chart to receive the test configuration.

Hope that helps,

The operating frequency alone is not enough to judge a processor by anymore. There's been so many changes that you'll have to read the charts suggested by Joshuacat to get an idea of the relative performance.
