It's not even a FSB, but a Hypertransport connection between the CPU and the RAM. A64 CPU's have no official FSB.
Intel has a FSB still, but not AMD.
I also hope those are not the final specs for the D900K, because having a 2GB limit, as well as a VIA chipset would make it stupid to have in a very high price range.
Also, the current shipping VIA K8T890's do NOT support dual core.
|The K8T890 chipset, VIA's first PCI Express Athlon 64 chipset, was announced to have full support for dual core Athlon 64s two months ago. However, motherboard manufacturers are telling us now that the current revision of the K8T890 doesn't support dual core AMD CPUs properly.|
