Now, there's definitely a good reason why Conroe will be nicely paired with DDR2 1066.

lol, I was just reading this in XS... and as you said, I wouldn't part away from the 8000UL, toatly agree.

Intel has been saying for quite some time that the integrated memory controller used by AMD chips is more sensitive to the higher latency of DDR2. Higher latency memory will force AMD's on-chip memory controller to wait longer for the DRAM signals thus minimizing its gains over Intel's front-side bus design.

Intel has also been saying that AMD's approach causes some timing complications when one processor needs to access data stored in memory affiliated with another processor and that the legacy method of integrating the controller to the attached chipset will show gains with quad (Intel Tigerton is a four-core processor) or greater processing units.

We do know that the dual core of Intel's current models was a stop-gap solution meant to deal with AMD's release. Now I wonder about this and we will see with the release of Conroe and their method of core --> L1 memory which is somewhat deficient vs. AMD at the moment.

If Conroe contains the same core --> L1 memory management then I do not think Intel is correct and I then think we will see onboard memory controllers on Intel chips. If however, the new Conroe contains a more advance method of courier translation in core --> L1 then AMD might find some problems with quad or greater cores and an onboard memory control device. It could be that we will not see such efficiency until Tigerton though.
