Does synchronization makes the computer faster. I mean if I make the
speed of the FSB running at speed similar to the memory speed. For
example if I have DDR200 then I will make sure I will have a CPU with
FSB 400 and the motherboard should support FSB 400. Is this the
ulitmate goal of a computer designer in term of the speed?? or
Synchromization is not important??

Any help would be appreciate it .. thanks..

You want the data rate to match the FSB speed for best performance, With
DDR ram that means running them in sync. With non DDR (PC100/133/150) ram
and a a DDR FSB, you want the ram running as fast as possible.

Even this doesn't seem to help. I tried this with a 1Ghz Duron and ran
the memory at 133Mhz and it actually benchmarked slower than when the
memory was running at 100Mhz.
