Ahh good question my friend. They do not, it is just one of the stupid problems of the industry. Just like how I've seen some motherboards show DDR3-1600MHz, but that is not true. Like stubass said, 800MHz is DDR3-1600MT. I suppose things get lost in conversion; it's easy to think 800MHz, DDR times 2 = DDR3-1600MHz! But it is not the case.. seems like a common misconception that doesn't really hurt anybody so it's been left this way. rolleyes.gif
