You have missed the bit that the '1.066Ghz' bus is 'quad-pumped' so isn't really 1GHz at all: it is a quarter of that. Hence about 11:1 rather than about 3:1 ration between clock speeds. I just learned this from the above article (I had been taken in by marketers before and assumed that FSB speeds were real :-)
