Been looking at the HP Mini 110 netbook and a bit confused by conflicting information I've been given on its FSB.

It has the N280 processor (1.66GHz, FSB of 667MHz) but one set of specs I've seen for the same machine, with the same processor, refers to a FSB of 533.

Probably exposing my ignorance here, but is it possible for two identical processors to have different FSBs?

The CPU and the mainboard both have a FSB speed rating.
Perhaps it's the mainboard that is 533?

The Atom N280 definitely has a 667 FSB.

The 280 is 1.66 GHz clockspeed and a 667 MHz FSB, the 270 is 1.6 Ghz and 533 MHz FSB. The real world performance difference between the two is tiny and basically irrelevant.

I'm aware the difference is miniscule - just found the difference in quoted specs a little odd.
