I want to build a CPU with AMD proc. but I cant figure out how to determine AMD clock speed because it is not provided in tech. specs.
Hi CASTIGLIANO, looks like you got some prompt responses, unfortunately it doesn't look like anyone addressed your question regarding clock speed. Actually the spec do show the clock speed,the clock speed is the same thing as the CPU's operating frequency. Example: AMD Athlon 64 2800+ Newcastle 800MHz FSB Socket 754 Processor Model ADA2800AXBOX
64 bit Support: Yes
Cooling Device: Heatsink and Fan
Hyper-Transport Support: Yes
L1 Cache: 64KB+64KB
L2 Cache: 512KB
Multimedia Instruction: MMX, SSE, SSE2, 3DNOW! ProfessionalOperating Frequency: 1.8GHz
Process Type: 0.13 Ám
Series: Athlon 64
The operating frequency here is 1.8Ghz, which means that the clock speed is 1.8GHz.
The FSB at 800MHz is another spec entirely, FSB is short for Front Side Bus. You can find more info by googling these topics, there is a great deal of good information out there, read on and get back to us with any questions you have. There's usually someone here with the knowledge and patience to help.
