I have some rather ridicalous questions so bear with me for a while.
The last time i did overclocking was five years ago was when overclocking was simply configuring the jumpers on the motherboard and had nothing to do with the bios. Well now they all have to do with bioses for overclocking.
Here is my question for example for a 3.2Ghz intel pentium 4 chip with fsb 800mhz the fsb parameter in the bios is set to 200mhz thus using the below formula
200mhz times multiplier = cpu speed
If i were to use a 1.8Ghz amd chip with the fsb of the chip 266mhz the fsb parameter in the bios is set to 133mhz thus using the below formula
133mhz times multiplier = cpu speed
Basically my question is why is that for the intel chip to be rightfully configured the internal bus speed of the intel chip has to be divided by 4 and that of amd has to be divided by 2. Why is this so or am i missing something.
A detailed explanation would really be helpful
Any help is greatly appreciated
