not at all, that will give you the correct bandwith for ddr, it is just simplified so that it cannot be applied to any other ram tech i just wanted to put the full formula out there so that this guy wouldnt go and use the same formula to find the bandwith of his p4's bus.
If it isn't a P6 then it isn't a procesor

OMG, that discription is so confusing and misleading! 64 bits PER CYCLE, 128 bits PER CYCLE, 256 bits PER CYCLE! If you don't tell them "per cycle", people will think their 64-bit wide CPU bus is wider than it actually is, and that misunderstanding would negate my explanation that Dual Channel memory busses are 128-bits wide!
Yes, I know you mentioned bits per clock before that, but so many people know so little about this stuff that reading it like this could cause a whole lot of problems.
