At The Last Second: AMD's Trump Card - The Athlon XP 2600+

What Does 166 MHz FSB Bring Us?

Although there are many rumors going around that the FSB clock will be increased, AMD has kept to 133 MHz FSB with the Thoroughbred "B" as well. Among the chipsets for the Socket 462 platform, both the VIA KT333 and the KT400 support 166 MHz FSB.

The latest motherboards with the VIA KT333 and KT400 chipsets already offer an FSB clock of 166 MHz and 200 MHz.
