Could someone please explain to me the following:
I have an old server with a 2.8Ghz processor.
Nowadays server processors come in 2.2ghz, 2.4ghz, 2.93ghz, etc...
Getting a dual 2.4ghz processors makes sense to me as they're Quad cores?
but it sounds like i am going backwards getting a 2.4ghz and not something higher than 2.8ghz.
are processors nowadays lower (#s) but actually faster because of the cache, cores, etc?
sorry for the stupid question, just trying to make sense of it.
