? Old vs New GHz nums for cpus ?


It's been quite a while since I shopped for a computer (laptop) and I'm looking to replace it. But the GHz numbers on the laptops these days are confusing: My old laptop that I bought in 2014 has an intel i-7 4710hq which is rated at 2.50 ghz. But I see laptop cpus now that are in the 11th and 12th gen of i-7 or i-9 but they are 1.10 ghz and other small numbers and the laptops are still pretty highly priced. Does 1.5 ghz with an 11th gen i-9 produce more output than an i-7 4710hq (from 2014)? If so, what's a good way to compare processor speeds when comparing laptops?
