1,000,000 times faster than CPUs?

Depends on the CPU.  A quad core intel gets around 20Mhs.  One of the top ASIC's is around 6,000,000Mhs.

In that scenario 6,000,000/20=300,000.

Edit: I forgot to add the hardware comparison link.

A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
A: Top-posting.
Q: What is the most annoying thing on usenet and in e-mail?

Adding onto what os2sam said, if the top ASIC does 6,000,000 MH/s, then this ASIC would be about...

300,000 times faster than a quad core Intel CPU and 8571 times faster than a Radeon 7970 GPU hashing at 700MH/s.

Then there's efficiency as well, obviously ASICs are much more efficient than anything else that can hash.

wouldn't be more accurate to compare by square millimeters of silicium ? number of transistors ?
GH/s/Watt maybe ?

no ASIC is 6 PTH/s ... you are talking of a device with many ICs ...(integrated Circuit)

That number is 6TH/s, not 6PH/s. Think you might have read it wrong.

This can get complicated, chip for CPU comparison or miner against CPU comparison, either way the ASIC beats the CPU hands down. 300,000 to 1,000,000 times the speed. I only have 1 kind of miner that has just 1 ASIC Chip in it. And its very outdated now, I use them on triplemining cause its useless anywhere else.  we are so far ahead now you can compare ASIC chips to each other. Comparing ASICs against CPUS is like comparing cows to birds.
