It is very application-dependent, of course, but many "white papers" on
RDRAM, where exact same configurations and programs have been
benchmarked with the two kinds of memory, were VERY inconclusive!
Some showed as much as a 10% difference, but most showed less difference
than that.  CPUs with big caches do make a larger difference.
