Re: Socket 5/7/SS7 (Processor) Tweaker
The thought and Idea has come up many times, including myself, but I don’t know if anyone has ever investigated it in a long winded research thread.
I need to understand better the relationship between the bus and the clock pin, the flexibility of various elements to operate at different clocks and even asynchronous (drifting) clock relationships. Is the cpu truly divorced from the bus? Or does it need to stay synchronized in some way? And would such a device break that?
I’ve been under the impression that if these are out of sync the whole setup would fall apart. But I don’t know for sure. Does anyone else have thoughts or knowledge on this?
Some background: socket 5/7/SS7 uses a processor internal multipler/divider that is inside the cpu its self. So that obviously isn’t able to be modified as it is internal, but maybe it’s able to be put in series with another device that is external to the cpu.
