Backside Bus

Backside and Frontside buses are used to carry data back and forth from a computers CPU. The Frontside bus does this between the memory and CPU whilse the Backside bus moves data in and out of the computer's L2 cache. As this data is frequently used it is stored near to the processor, and as a result the computer's CPU can work much faster. Often the Backside bus is as fast as the processor.
