Your implication that some absolute number of MHz means much about
system performance is very i386-centric.  May as well go back to using
the bogomips value, at least the bogo- prefix is honest.

(Now, amount of RAM is at least _somewhat_ comparable as a metric for
what combination of apps will thrash the system and what might not.
For a single-user, single-login machine.  Doesn't particularly apply
to, say, a terminal server.)
