    Why do some of the AMD cpus have 2ghz FSB and Intel has 800fsb as the highest. why is there such a huge difference? what does FSB give you anyway?

    what is the difference between cache and FSB?

    FSB is the speed at which a computer's components interact and send data. Most new intel chips have 800mhz FSB's and AMD has 1000mhz HT which is comparable. The difference is negligable at best. When I overclocked my AMD CPU I had the HT multiplier down to 4x or 800mhz and there was no performance difference. Anything below that and you might see a difference. The biggest difference between most Athlon 64 chips and Intel is the 64 bit processing, gaming performance, and operating temps are much lower on newer Athlon cores compared to Prescott Intel cores.
