I never got Leif's original post, but I don't understand this anyway...

I thought chip speeds were determined by the quality of the manufacturing
process...?!?

Meaning, they produce a batch of chips and rate them according to what speed
they can attain.  Sorta like sorting the biggest and best apples into the
premium class (and charge accordingly) and the others into the regular class
of apples...


Not a hardware guy, mind you...  But this is my understanding of Intel chip
speeds...
