Lynnfield's memory condition

iXBT Labs explores the new world of Lynnfield's onboard memory controller and its abilities and disabilities. For instance the controller can do more with single bank modules than with the more common dual bank DIMMs. They examine just how increasing the frequency of the memory compares with increasing the amount of memory available to the processor. Drop by for some interesting results; it seems the days of the 32bit operating system were just yesterday, but it seems that they ended a while ago.
"Frankly speaking, we expected a bit more from DDR3-1333 support, but the game was not worth the candle.
Still, from another angle it's a very good result, because even 1066MHz memory with two modules per
channel causes no trouble."
