    The reason they don't compare any more is because it's ambiguous. For example, the processor used in the Gamecube and Wii can only do some types of operations 32 bit, others in 64 bit, and others in 128 bit. Back when all three were the same and also the same as the interface to the rest of the computer it told you a lot about the speed of the chip. These days, there are other much more important numbers that describe the speed of a chip.
