I've been lurking on this forum for a while now and I finally decided to make an account.
I want to learn more about how computers work so I am doing a lot of research on this topic.
I've been reading a lot about CPUs lately but there a few things I learned that I'm not entirely sure about.
Let's say I have a 3.4Ghz processor that's 64bit.
So my cpu would have a bus speed of 3.4Ghz and a bus width of 64bit.
That means that my CPU can send 3.4GB of data every clock rate.(Which is every second I understand)
However because the CPU is 64 bit I can process more because I have to apply the formula: bus speed X bus width.
64bit = 8bytes
So my 64bit, 3.4Ghz cpu can actually send 3.4Gb X 8 bytes of data in one clock rate whic would be 27.2GB.
Does that mean that my CPU can actually send 27.2GB of data in one clock rate?
P.S. - I know there are other factors that limit speed like ram, GPU etc but I just want to know if the above is correct as in the CPU could send that much data in one clock rate.
