K6-2 300 bus speed
Just curious but,
I was consulting a list for k6-2 prices and I saw a wierd (at least for me) thing:
The list showed k6-2 300/66 e k6-2 300/100 !
So, there is a k6-2 for a 66 Mhz bus and other for the 100 Mhz ? What does the processor has to do with the bus speed, except for the fact that the internal clock comes from there (via multiplier) ???
Can anyone explain me this ?
Yes, there are 2 flavors of the k6 300. This happened sometime after VIA's MVP3 chipset "officially" supported the 100Mhz FSB. So, AMD basically started producing the 100Mhz flavor of the k6 300 at the same time they had the 66Mhz chip in the market.
So, there is a k6-2 for a 66 Mhz bus and other for the 100 Mhz ?
Basically, 100Mhz FSB is the speed at which the cpu talks to system memory. Ordinarily it used to be 66Mhz.
What does the processor has to do with
the bus speed, except for the fact that the internal clock comes from there (via multiplier) ???
Hope this helps
Actually, the 66Mhz version was introduced after the 100Mhz version at the behest of some of the big OEM's. They needed to unload existing inventory of 66Mhz motherboards.
