These CPU settings...

Hello. I've got a new PC with an athlon 64 3500 CPU. I've been looking in the BIOS and noted that the 'HyperTransport (HT) Configuration' showed up as thus:-

HT Frequency [1000 MHz]
HT DATA Width Upstream[16 BIT]
HT DATA Width Downstream [16 BIT]

What do these settings mean, and are they set at max' for best performance???

You asked what these settings mean, so here's the boring bit.;-)

The HT settings ( Hyper Transport )is the setting that transfers the data from the CPU to your AGP card. The better the graphics card, the faster the transfer rate to the AGP card. The settings usually are 200Mhz > 400Mhz > 600Mhz > 800Mhz and 1000Mhz. 1000Mhz being the best.

So yes it is running at it's optimum. lol
