Interesting how this gives a rather different view of memory bandwidth
than that:

Seems the AM2 easily beats the core2 on either P35 or X38 chipset.
Seems the AMD managed just under 9.2GB/sec using a 6400+, while the
intel managed just under 6.4GB/sec using an overclocked QX9650 at 4GHz.
Sure means the AMD gets much closer to the theoretical number, while the
intel manages barely half of the theoretical number.

Now if those are bandwidth between cpu and mainboard, then it makes more
sense since the FSB on the intel does have more bandwidth then hyper
transport.  Putting it to actual use on the other hand is a different
