model # corresponds to frequency?

hello, I have a basic cpu question: Does a cpu's model # always have the same frequency?

for instance, my Athlon xp 1600+ -- I see under My Computer properties that it runs at 1.4 Ghz. Does this mean that all 1600+ run at this frequency?

-------------------------------------------------
Athlon64 Newcastle, 2800+, 640KB Cache, 1800 MHz
MSI K8M Neo-V, VIA K8M800 + 8237 chipset
Sapphire Atlantis Radeon 9600 256MB

Only till they are properly OCed.
All of the early xp chips were multiplier locked, and ran @ an fsb of 133. Each designation ran at it's own base speed.
Some would start at 3/4ths rated, because the fsb had defaulted to 100.

No. AMD doesn't base the model number just on the frequency alone. Things like cache size and FSB can also affect the #. While <i>most</i> of AMD's model numbers will be unique, some do overlap.

For example, and <b>AXP 2600+</b>:
1) <font color=green>2133MHz @ 266MHz FSB w/256KB cache</font color=green>
2) <font color=blue>2083MHz @ 333Mhz FSB w/256KB cache</font color=blue>
3) <font color=red>1917MHz @ 333MHz FSB w/512KB cache</font color=red>
