Default question about ESC's frequencies.

Ok, I have two ESC's here, a Duratrax Streak, and an Intellispeed 12t, now, what I'm wondering, and I think the 12t is better, what the hell do all the numbers mean lol, what's the operating frequency, most importantly, and what does it pertain to?

Frequency is the rate at which the FETs in the ESC are switched on and off.

Generally higher frequencies give a smoother throttle response and may also make the car a bit more efficient and gentler on the motor.

So the streak would actually be a better choice?
