You can't find it because it's not there.

AirSluf, I really dont get it.
In a 2GHz G5 the FSB runs at 500MHz which is a quarter of 2GHz so it's a bus ratio of 4:1.
Anything else doesn't matter. Not that the bus is double pumped and not that there is one way out and one way...

No, the front side bus is 2:1.
The memory is double channel DDR (hence the need to upgrade in pairs of DIMMS), the double channel aspect ups the throughput between the memory and system...

The bus ratio in a G5 is 4:1 at the moment. The 970 can handle 2:1, 3:1, 4:1 and 6:1. So you might see a 3GHz upgrade some day from Sonnet that uses the 6:1 bus ratio. Expect prices to be unsane
Or perhaps the 970FX and its successors...
