Each core has either 512K of L2 cache (Manchester) or 1 MB (Toledo). Both cores run at the same speed (either 2.2 or 2.4 GHz).

With AMDs, the core processor speed doesn't really prove the power of the processor. Pretty much, an AMD 2600 = a P4 2.6GHZ, an AMD 4000 = P4 4GHZ, etc.

The PR rating was a bit of an overstatement with the Athlon XPs (for example, a 3200+ was close to a P4 2.8 in performance, not a 3.2) but the Socket 939 A64's are on the conservative side with the ratings. Socket 754 seems to be in between those.
