    I want to purchase a new computer soon, and would like to buy one with an Athlon processor.

    I have a number of software applications I will want to install on this new machine, but the system requirement are always listed in terms of Pentium processors and Ghz.

    How can I know if a certain Athlon processor is comparable to a certain Pentium version?:confused:

    (For example: I know I will need the equivalent of a P4 - 2.4 Ghz.)

    Thanks!

    An Athlon XP 2400+ would be equivilant to a Pentium 4 2.4Ghz.

    An Athlon's model number is to what clock speed its compareable on a Pentium 4. So an Athlon64 3200+ will give you roughly the same performance as an Intel Pentium 4 running at 3000Mhz.
