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:
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.
