1

Your Coworker Patrick has a Core i5 3.1 Ghz CPU and wants you to tell him what the bus speed is and what the maximum multiplier is. What do you tell him?

A. 3.1 GHz and 31
B. 3.1 GHz and 100
C. 100 and 31
D. 200 and 31

C.

The default bus speed is 100 Mhz and the maximum multiplier is 31 times that. (100 MHz x 31 = 3.1 GHz) Processor is at this speed if it requires it. In this scenario, it would hover around 1600 MHz (1.6 GHz) for a multiplier of 16. The Multiplier increase if the system runs more applications and requires more CPU power. Intel CPUs also have Turbo Boost tech which allows CPU's speed to be raised by 10 percent beyond the maximum. In this scenario, it go up to 3.4 GHZ. Many motherboard allow you to increase system bus speed.. Some stop at 105 Mhz and some up to 300 MHz
