[Help] Need help on Hardware info
Just out of curiousity, I would like to know how the motherboard bus speed interact with other hardware such as CPU, RAM, Graphic card, I/O devices and other PCI cards.
For example, on the motherboard its stated that it has 1066 MHZ of bus speed. What does it mean to other hardware component such as CPU clocks(2ghz, 3ghz, etc), graphic card(400mhz, 500mhz,etc), RAM (333,400,533,1066), or other devices.
Does CPU clock at 3ghz splitting the speed to 3x1066? Can anyone intepret further for this?
What about graphic card, since they have their own chipset clock speed and the memory clock speed. Should I assume that the limit that current motherboard can support is the Graphic card that can run up to 1033 clock speed? How about the memory speed, I saw ddr3 on the desc and some of the graphic card have a memory speed up to 1.5 GHZ, wouldn't it cause a bottleneck since the motherboard only support upto 1ghz?
Next one would be the ram, I have seen so far in the market , the popular one they have are DDR 400, and DDR2 533. In that case since only INTEL can support DDR2 .. is that correct that most latest INTEL socket motherboard can support up to 1066 (with current dual channel ram 2x 533) ? What about AMD motherboard since they can't support DDR2 yet so I would assume their highest bus speed would be 800mhz? is that correct? does it mean they are slower then intel motherboard?
