FSB = Front Side Bus
Front-Side-Bus is a term describing a Processor (CPU)-to-system memory data bus. It has also known as CPU bus speed, external CPU speed, memory bus and system bus. It is the speed that the CPU communicates with RAM (memory). The front side bus on a computer connects the processor to the north side bridge, which comprises the memory bus, PCI bus and AGP bus. In general, a faster frontside bus means higher processing speeds and a faster computer.
