First of all. This isn\'t true
Microsoft Denies Xbox 1GHz Rumor DailyRadar
Yesterday, GameWeek reported that Microsoft was considering replacing the 733KHz chip with one running at a 1GHz or more. We contacted Microsoft about the story and they told us in no uncertain terms that Xbox will not have a 1GHz chip, but will instead use the 733KHz Pentium III processor as originally planned.
Secondly, the EE and the Pentium III are totally different. I don\'t know why the people are still looking at the Mhz when it doesn\'t give you a real proof of the system\'s capacity. Actually, the EE outperforms the Pentium III. It\'s at least, 2 to 3 times more powerful( specially in 3D calculation). Also, it doesn\'t have the bandwith problem that the P-III has.
The real capacity of the X-box it\'s on the GPU, not in the CPU, and this isn\'t going to change if they make the micro work at a higher speed, so this discussion is useless.
And another thing, i don\'t know what are you look for when you choose a system, but the most important thing for me is the support( number of developers, and which games are going to be developed for the system), and in this case the PS2 is amazing.
