All well and good. It's nice to see that AMD is <i>finally</i> addressing the issue of better memory technologies and how an on-die mem controller can actually use them.
The next major question is though: Exactly how much improvement will an on-die mem controller make?
It it is a major improvement over an off-die controller, then you could end up with <i>worse</i> performance even using a dual-channel DDRII-400 memory solution than you would be using the on-die single-channel DDR-333 memory solution.
But if the on-die controller doesn't give <i>that</i> much of an improvement, and the dc-DDRII solution turns out to be better, then one must ask the question: What was the point of even putting the mem contoller on the die in the first place?
Time will tell...
