    Well, yeah, of course it matters. However, it's not the only thing that
    matters when comparing processor performance. Still, at its rawest, the
    basic idea with processor speed is (size of data) X (CPU frequency).

    Within a chip family, of course. But the 2Ghz G5 Mac running with
    G4-optimized code doing scalar computations managed to match a
    2.66Mhz Pentium4, and the G5 had significantly higher MFLOPS/Mhz than
    the G4 and Pentium.
