Default Re: OT-What is the front side buss?

When in the context of PCs a bus refers to a set of conductors (hard wired) on the circuit board of the device (motherboard).

The bus is split into two 'channels' one that transfers the data and one that specifies where the data should be transferred to. The Internal Bus connects all of the PC's components to the CPU and memory banks.

The bus width refers to the amount of bits that can be transferred at any one time, for example, a 32-bit bus can transfer 32 bits of data simultaneously.

The bus speed (frequency) is usually measured in MHz, for example say a bus has a speed of 100Mhz and a width of 32 bits then the bus can transfer 3,200,000,000 bits of data per second !!

When in the context of networking a bus refers to the cable (backbone) that connects all devices together.

An FSB (FrontSide Bus) transfers data between the CPU, the memory bank and other components.

A BSB (BackSide Bus) transfers data between the CPU and the L2 Cache.

Is it like the small buss? That's what I rode to school. My mom said I got to ride it cause it was only for the most specialist people, and there aren't many, which is why it is small. But my friend said it was small so we didn't get lost finding our way off each time.

No Nikki, that was the Frontof the Small Bus. I used to ride the Front Side Bus which involved hanging on the side of the bus at the side window near the front and trying to not get caught by the bus driver. I did get caught by the principal and had to walk to school from then on.

I hope this clears up the confusion.
