GUys,

An increasing Bus Frequencies increases bandwith? I dont know the relation of these two. Can anybody explain to me. Thanks.

What is Bandwidth?
Code:
In a digital communication system, bandwidth has a dual meaning. In the technical sense, it is a synonym for baud rate, the rate at which symbols may be transmitted through the system. It is also used in the colloquial sense to describe channel capacity, the rate at which bits may be transmitted through the system. Hence, a 66 MHz digital data bus with 32 separate data lines may properly be said to have a bandwidth of 66 MHz and a capacity of 2.1 Gbit/s — but it would not be surprising to hear such a bus described as a having a "bandwidth of 2.1 Gbit/s." Similar confusion exists for analog modems, where each symbol carries multiple bits of information so that a modem may transmit 56 kbit/s of information over a phone line with a bandwidth of only 12 kHz. In discrete time systems and digital signal processing, bandwidth is related to sampling rate according to the Nyquist-Shannon sampling theorem. Bandwidth is also used in the sense of commodity, referring to something limited or something costing money. Thus, communication costs bandwidth, and improper use of someone else's bandwidth may be called bandwidth theft.

Frequency : clk freq or data strobe freq, for example: PCI bus 33Mhz, but the bandwith means the handling capcaity of a bus or harbor, euqal 33MhzX 32bit=3132MB hz
