yeah I know PSU's and Harddrives get marginally mislabeled in term of preformance, but aren't CPU's the same. I have AMD 2.6 running at 2.1 ghz. Are there really3.0+ CPUs out there? Or are they called 3.0 but run at 2.8/2.5? Also, the CPUs called 4 ghz, are they really that, or are they close like 3.5? [This question should also answer the previous one.]

Are you talking about AMD's or Intels?

Does it matter?

Yes it does.

Intel prosessers are messured in actual performence and AMD's are messured in relative performence (eg. an AMD 2800+ runs at 2.25ghz but performs like a 2.8ghz Intel).

Intel messure it in there actual speed (a 2.8ghz P4 is running a 2.8ghz).

As what FileTrekker said. If you see a AMD 3500+ it meas it runs at speeds as a Intel clocked at 3.5ghz but the AMD is only clocked at 2.2ghz. Thats sad really a processor clocked at 2.2ghz can out beat a 3.5ghz Intel.

true but if u have the 64bit an u gto 2000 u will not get the 2.4 acting like a 2.8 but if u got a intel p4 2.4 overclocked to 3.4 u will get a window of operation speeds no less than 2.8, but the key is heat AMDs not over clocked dont make much heat but once u over clock it, it will burn up, bun in tell will only drift 2-5degrees with the same window of operation speeds. over all a AMD is what is more relayible whne it come to better proformance not overclocked but a intel will overclock with better effects(i do custom computers and test lots of hardware)

Okay, so it does matter. But are there really Intel 3.0+ [plus] chips out there? And what's the deal with the AMD 4000+?

Simply that that chip would be equivalent in speed to a 4 GHz P4, if they existed.

Uhm, they do. :lookaround:

No. Intel has no plans to release a 4GHz P4, due to heat issues caused by forcing too much current though the chip. That sort of speed can only be reached by overclocking.
