As you say, the companies whose chip MHz rating is lower than Intel's
will always (accurately) claim that MHz is misleading and to no avail.
The simple-minded market place will not listen. My contention was
that if those same companies had chips with a rating higher than the
highest Intel they would stop saying that MHz is misleading. After all,
we cannot ignore all those simple-minded people out there, can we?
