 Japanese term or phrase: 2逓倍 Hi all, Under CPU definition, it appears as- クロック ：メイン処理：８ＭＨｚ（４MHz／２逓倍） Thanks a ton for your time!!
 Local time: 00:23
 English translation:times 2 Explanation:In the CPU definition, I would leave out the slash and say "4MHz x 2". 2 is the multiplier defined as follows at: http://www.yale.edu/pclt/PCHW/clockidea.htm Multiplier The CPU generates an internal clock that runs faster than the mainboard clock. If the mainboard clock is 100 MHz and the CPU "multiplier" is 24, then the internal clock cycles 24 times for every tick of the mainboard clock, producing a CPU speed of 2.4 GHz. The same 2.4 GHz can also be produced by applying a multiplier of 18 to a mainboard clock running at 133 MHz. The multiplier is manufactured into the CPU chip and cannot be changed.

frequency multiplier

Explanation:
The question has already been answered, so just let me comment that my clients frequently (pun intended) confuse frequency multipliers and divisors. Yes, this ex-mathematician realizes that they're the same thing. It's just that the text descriptions (and applications) are different. So designs even combine the two, one after the other.
