Um, no. The MULTIPLIER stays the same (x4.5), but the CPU speed gets upped
66.667MHz input x 4.5 = 300 MHz internal CPU clock
100MHz input x 4.5 = 450 MHz internal CPU clock.
In my more cynical moments, I'd say that "irrational female" was a
redundancy, but I'm in a good mood, so I'll refrain... -- Don Brinker
