Debugging the Megahertz Myth Editorial

@ 2004/09/16
Most, if not all, of you have read or been in heated debates over why or why not higher clocked microprocessors are better than their "comparable" competition. Just why is it that so many people stand behind their arguments about a 2.4GHz processor outperforming a 3.4GHz processor overall? Also, why do benchmarks sometimes show lower clocked processors beating higher clocked processors in some tests? I thought gigahertz and megahertz determined a processor’s performance… Well, you’d be surprised if you are one who thought that.
