Freebase

  1. Pumping

    Pumping, when referring to computer systems, is simply how many times per clock cycle data is being transmitted. Early types of system memory, such as SDRAM, transmitted data on only the rising edge of the clock. With the advent of double data rate synchronous dynamic RAM or DDR SDRAM, the data was transmitted on both rising and falling edges. However, quad-pumping has been used for a while for the front side bus of a computer system. This works by transmitting data at the rising edge, peak, falling edge, and trough of each clock cycle. Intel computer systems use this technology to reach effective FSB speeds of 1600 MT/s, even though the FSB clock speed is only 400 MHz. A phase-locked loop in the CPU then multiplies the FSB clock by a factor in order to get the CPU speed. Example: A Core 2 Duo E6600 processor is listed as 2.4 GHz with a 1066 MHz FSB. The FSB is known to be quad-pumped, so its clock frequency is 1066/4 = 266 MHz. Therefore, the CPU multiplier is 2400/266, or 9×. The DDR2 RAM that it is compatible with is known to be double-pumped and to have an Input/Output Bus twice that of the true FSB frequency, so to run the system synchronously the type of RAM that is appropriate is quadruple 266 MHz, or DDR2-1066.
