The CPU NorthBridge (CPU NB) clock speed determines the efficiency and bandwidth capacity of the Memory controller. L3 cache runs at this frequency as well. CPU NB performance tuning gives a measurable boost for overall system performance. In particular it can reduce the Memory latency and improve L3 cache bandwidth and latency.

i have a 790fx mobo
and a 5770 <- if this was 47/48xx would it be considered a dragon platform then?
