I would assume it runs at 1Ghz on a 533MHz Front Side Bus.

Its cheap because of the system specs.

Its cheap because the processor is not an Intel or AMD built processor. It runs at 533 but how its actual performance is when it is compared to an intel Processor is not known. Its built by Transmeta.

Lurker,
I don't think that misprint is in the ad. Check out the product description from the system maker ECS . They certainly seem to think that they've loaded a Transmeta 1 GigaPro CPU in these systems. :D

Bah 1gigapro is the name of the motherboard and they use it to confuse people

PCChips and ECS throw around 1gigapro for all their non-amd/intel cpus whether they are 1ghz or less.

Ignore the one gigapro and remember the thing is like a celeron 700 at best.

Cheers
