  Simple question, I would hope ... I want to spec out a new server, and
want to compare AMD vs Intel ... is there anything online that gives
approx equivalents?  ie. a Xeon 2.4Ghz processor would be approx

I know you're not a troll, Marc, but this question is much like asking whether emacs or vi makes a better editor. :-) An Intel Xeon 2.4GHz CPU approximately resembles an AMD 2400MP CPU in terms of capabilities and performance. By this I mean they get very similar scores from www.spec.org's spec2000int:

Epox 8KHA+, AMD Athlon XP 2400+: 782
Dell PowerEdge 2650 (2.4 GHz Xeon): 792

...although the spec2000fp numbers are 641 vs. 726, so the Xeon does
better at floating point.  For that particular test, anyway.  Do you
require SMP capabilities?  What are you trying to do with this machine?

If I remember correctly though, the fp numbers are for SSE on the Xeon, and not
the regular old FPU, p4 based machines are horrible when it comes to
non-SSE/SSE2 type stuff.
