Sorry, don't know much about intel except that I think it has something to do with the HT, and also I would like to point out intel does make 64's.

Sorry, but no. The AMD64 don’t have a FSB they have HTT (does the same thing). And HTT runes at 800MHz or the new 1000MHz. It is full duplex however so marketing guys say it is 1600MHz and 2000MHz respectively.

Good Call BSman, that is exactly correct. Intel's Buses are quad pumped (4x200mhz=800mhz stock). AMD doesn't have a front side bus because the memory controller is right on the core, so it runs at the core speed. The Hyper Transport allows super fast communication with the memory and since it is duplex, it does count as 1600mhz and 2000mhz.

Last thing I heard was that it's FSB was = to it's Core speed.
