isn't this a really high bus.core ratio. I thought i7 processors were good?.

  1. ? 34 isnt a ratio, somthing like 3:4 is
    example my bus : dram is 3:10
  2. 34x 100mhz fsb = 3.4ghz.
  3. Well, what you have is 100Mhz baseclock multiplied by the 34 multiplier giving you 3.4Ghz. i7 CPUs are great. I don't know what the issue with that is. Could you explain more?
  4. The cpu does things differently and previous generation Intel core processors, so you can't compare the multipliers of current chips with previous chips. The i7-2600k is one of the best cpu's that you can get right now.
