View Full Version : Why run with synced mem/fsb freq on nforce 2

I know that there is a fairly big performance penalty when running async memory/fsb freqs on a nforce 2 but what I'm wondering is why does that occur. From what I understand not all chipsets exibit this behavior.

Data cab be handles evenly 12bit of data at a time 12:12 can be delt with easy but if ones faster then the other the we get data build up and some data gets lots as has to fetch it again as such it increases latency alot.

but why do other chipsets not exhibit this?

Because their memory interface is drastically different. No recent VIA chipsets that support the Athlon XP have dual channel DDR memory, etc.
