I'm not sure if I'm posting this is the right place, but I'm looking at a computer set up (out of the box) that has an AMD Phenom X4 processor at 2.3 MHz, and it has a 1800 MHz Front Side Bus. I understand that the bus can slow down what could otherwise be a fast computer, but I don't know if this FSB is slow for the rest of the computer. Help? Other info, if it helps: 4MB L2 cache, 4 GB DDR2 SDRAM, 500 GB hard drive. Thanks!
Thats 2.3ghz aka 2300mhz
AMD's dont really have a "FSB", more hypertransport and an integrated memory controller etc
Seems the FSB bottleneck is over hyped - Core 2 Duo vs AMD K8+ vs Intel Core i7, performance difference shows its not really a bottleneck but then again it comes down to architecture etc- cache helps.
If your after a super fast machine look into an Intel Core 2 Quad or Intel Core i7 if you have the $$$ - AMD just doesnt seem in the game atm.
