you see 3000+ is actually equals to 3.0ghz intel pentium4, its basically depends on the core of processor, AMD processors has shorter pipelines, hence makin it run faster whereas Intel processors has longer pipelines.

thats why: -

2200+ = 2.2ghz pentium
2400+ = 2.4ghz pentium

But now since Northwood core has hit the market, its nothing like 2600+ equals to 2.6C, its like 2.4C = 2600+

new stats are somewhat like this: -

AMD 64 2800+ = 2.8 intel
AMD 64 3200+ = 3.2 intel
