false and false.

32M SPi is heavily dependent on memory bandwidth...1M has next to nothing to do with it since 1M is all held primarily in the CPU cache. this is why 4MB C2D's were that much faster than 2MB C2D's and why i7 hauls C2D's ass out to the wood shed clock for clock.

now...your second comment is absolutely ridiculous and i won't even bother touching it. just re read it and try to justify your comment, it makes no sense at all. DDR2 higher frequency than DDR3...i7 has a FSB?
