I'm using Linux and have an old P4 with about 3 GHz clock speed. Will a newer chip that had slower clock speed run my legacy applications faster or slower? I only use one application at a time, an old drawing program (windows app used in wine) that is unable to take advantage of multicore, and have no desire to run anything in the background.
For example - I was looking at used computer that was CORE 2 DUO 1.86GHZ. This is only half the clock speed, but a much newer chip. Will this run my single app faster or slower or about the same?
