My sister is looking at buying a compaq preserio with AMD Athlon™ XP2200+ installed, and I was wondering what speed it goes at. Is it a 2gig or what. I have tried looking around Compaq, and Amd, and am still know no more than I did when I started. TIA

Hi SuperGran,

The AMD XP2200 runs at ~1800Mhz.

The tricky bit about though is that it runs many applications as though it was an Intel Pentium 4 2.2Ghz processor. It does this by having a more efficient architecture.

Intel didn't use to agree to this idea, at least until they released their latest mobile pentium chips :)

Hi there,

The AMD should run at 1.80ghz.

The 2200+ is a performance rating. Basically its the same speed as a 2.2GHz Pentium 4.
