    I know that the fastest intel chip is faster than an amd fastest but just want to know which speed is equal to an amd 1.7xp processor.

    For example, is the processor as fast as a 1.5 ghz pentium 4 or less?

    edit: typo (thats spelling right???)

    i suggest to make a benchmark of the differnt systems. then you will have exact values of system performance. a tool you can find here

    if you do not have both to test so ask people here at the forum to make a benchmark.

    Are you talking about a Athlon 1700 or an Athlon 2100(which is 1.7ghz, I believe)?

    AMDs haven't been able to keep up with the clock speeds on the Pentium 4s. So for a long time AMD stated that the faster clock speeds equaling better performance was just a myth, but that's pretty much proven to be a crappy excuse for letting Intel beat them( and subsequently out perform them).

    If you have an Athlon 2100(at 1.7 ghz) then it should probably perform pretty even with a pentium4 at 1.7 ghz, but if you have an Athlon 1700 then a pentium4 1.7ghz would probably out perform it in benchmark tests.
