Is dual DDR-SDRAM making sense when the processor bus is limited to 2.6 GB/s? For an integrated graphic solution this would make sense, but otherwise?
I have seen the Nforce chipset outperforming the KT333, but this should be because the bus speed has been increased from 133 MHz to 166 MHz.

They have done an interesting comparison of the KT333, Nforce2 with 1 stick of ram and Nforce2 with 2.
It seems that the memory controller on the Nforce has considerably lower latency than the KT333, which gives it an advantage in either 1 or 2 channel mode.

Thanks for the tip. I have already read that article.
This is a good thing (that the NForce2 has a better mem. controller). What about the dual DDR? Is it making any sense on Athlon? I mean without the dual DDR the board would be cheaper and it would still have the same memory controller.
