One hertz is one cycle per second. Were you to, say, tap your knee once every second, your knee-tapping frequency would be one hertz. One megahertz is one million cycles per second, and a gigahertz is one billion cycles per second. You probably can’t tap your knee that fast, at least not without some serious bruising, but current processors run at speeds well over one gigahertz. Speed is tied closely to the price of the processor. Usually, when a higher speed processor is released to market, lower speed processors drop in price.
