Hello Experts! I was reading through the 15" MacBook Pro Technology Overview pdf file on the detailed specifications page of the same and came across this particular excerpt from that. "if both slots are loaded with an equal amount of RAM, you can take advantage of the system’s dual-channel memory architecture for an additional performance boost. With a dualchannel memory interface, both banks of SDRAM can be addressed at the same time, enabling MacBook Pro to reach a memory throughput of up to 10.7 GBps." I am not much of a computer architecture person but i am not totally ignorant to it. -Can someone please explain in more technical terms as to how exactly does addressing both the RAM chips 'at the same time' can increase the throughput? -Moreover what exactly do they mean by addressing both the memory banks at the same time? How do they do it? -Is this the case with PCs as well? -Is this because of the Intel architecture or because of Apples OS X? Cheers!
