The Bus Speed Guide

Quake 1.06 Timedemo Benchmark Results For Different CPU And Buspeeds

CPU Speed in MHz

Busspeed 50 MHz,25,Frame Rate (fps)75,8.7,blue100,10.2,blue125,11.1,blue150,11.8,blue

Now there you are! Hope that everybody can see the importance of the bus speed and also the new possibilities it's opening for us. To make it even more clear, I have another graph for you. It shows the frame rates of my system with the same CPU speed, but with different bus speeds:

1.5x66,11.5,blue100
2x50,10.2,blue125
2x83,14.4,blue125
2.5x50,11.1,blue150
2x75,15.3,blue150
2.5x60,13.3,blue150
3x50,11.8,blue166
2x83,17,blue166
2.5x66,14.7,blue166
3x55,13,blue200
3x66,15.7,blue

Can you see, what I mean now?

A Pentium 166, running at 2 x 83 MHz is faster than a Pentium 200 at 3 x 66 MHz, and a Pentium at 125 MHz outclasses a Pentium at 180 MHz!!! Doesn't that give you a completely new perspective about overclocking at all cost? Is anybody still seriously interested at running his 6x86 at 3 x 50 MHz or his Pentium at 180 MHz??

But wait for the Winstone results.
