re: MGHZ, SHMGHZ
Ah, but Tai, you missed this one little tidbit of info:
But even here, the Pentium 4 beats Pentium III and Athlon chips in only one speed test: playing Quake III.
And, honestly, PCs are only good for gaming anyway. So that’s the most imporant thing to look at, even though they don’t mention if different video cards were used. That speed increase can probably just be attributed to the faster (read: more expensive) RAM used in the P4 boxen.
