yes. This is correct. The AMD 2200+ clock speed is 1.8GHz.

Mike,the 1800+ and 2200+ are not actual clock speeds, but a "PR rating" that AMD uses to compare the performance of their processors to earlier AMD processors (or so they say), but they're really meant to make you think they're equal to a Pentium 4 of the same clock speed as their PR rating. Therefore, an Athlon XP 2200+ should perform about the same as a Pentium 4 2.2GHz (2200MHz), being faster in some situations, and slower in others but basically balancing out to about the same speed.hope this helps, Max Cowgill
