Re: cpu help
Well the FSB(front side bus) is the rate at which the cpu communicates with the northbridge chipset. Its actually 3,600 MT/s which is Mega Transfers Per Second. A measurement of bus and channel speed in millions of "effective" cycles per second. Also written as "MT/s," it is a rating of the actual, delivered speed rather than the frequency of the clock. For example, if timing is derived from both the rising and falling edges of the cycle rather than one complete cycle, a 400 MHz clock yields 800 MT/sec
Basically its a like saying 1 ft per second, is 12 inches per second, just an alternative measure of bus speeds. Keep in mind you dont actually have an FSB which may be the confusing factor, the 1,800mhz is basically comparing it to if it had a FSB, but AMD and Higher end Intel CPUS use a "HyperTransportation" system which is a quicker point to point system. So if you had an "FSB" It would basically be at say 1800mhz, But you have a Hyper Transportation System that xfers at 3,600 MT/s(mega). Now the new i7 Intel processors do 6.4 GT/s(giga transfers
