I'm in an argument with a friend here and I need to know: If you are running a lot of programs, is the FSB going to drop? He says the G5 with a FSB of 1.25 sounds nice, but once your running programs, it will effectively drop to around 600. I told him he's a freakin' moron and the FSB does not slow down. Who's right?
~~Edit: Another ? Would it make a diff between 1MB of cache and 2MB of cache?
well, your friends a moron for 1, the fsb stays relatively constant, only varying by tenths of a mhz. on the cache front, yes 1mb vs. 2mb can make a large difference in speed.
