Single sided and double sided ram? Everything I've read points to double sided being slower...

It's pretty straight forward. Single-sided ram has memory modules on one side of the stick while Two-Sided ram has memory modules on both sides.

Yes, I understand that. But what does it mean performance wise?

I know that older ram double sided ram usually meant higher density which could cause incompatibility or you would take a hit in performance. It was easier to tell because dual ranked ram was usually two sided to fit added capacity. I recall this was important for ddr motherboards and some ddr2. I haven't seen any problems personally in dd3 boards.
As for performance today (ddr3) I suspect this is no longer an issue.
