Clock rate is only part of the equation you need to take into account core count, ipc, cache,etc, the athlon ii x4 has four cores, while the x2 280 has 2 cores.

It's the architecture, the 280 is based on 45nm die and K10 architecture which is very old now but still good. The 740 is based on the new Piledriver architecture and 32nm die, newer and better. Also 2 more cores and double the L2 cache. :)
