Of course not-- but then, I said "capabilities", not performance.
If you'd like to compare performance, choose a task or benchmark
which matters to you, and go from there. The comparisons I have done
suggests a 200MHz PPro will do a "make buildworld" faster than a
600MHz C3 Samuel, for example. YMMV, and I'd rather not debate this
matter further if you feel strongly about it...
