[ Memory Benchmarks ]
Strangely, unlike the Pentium 4 processors, the new Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Extreme processors do not rely on huge memory bandwidths to deliver killer performance. As you can see, both these new Intel processors managed a little over 5.5GB/s of memory bandwidth. This is comparable to the Pentium 4 660 and D 950 processors. The Athlon64 3800+ on the other hand has 700MB/s more bandwidth on hand, but how will it use it?
