I cant read german but whats interesting (unless Im misunderstanding) is that the 939 benches are also single channel only (ie using only one DIMM). So basically the 939 chip with half the cache is equivalent to the 754 chip (design tweaks? Process improvements?) WITHOUT utilizing its dualchannel controller. Performance would likely improve ~3-7% (give or take) utilizing the dual channels.

The correct link:

(copy and paste)

Well, some benchmarks are better than none, I guess. It's too bad that Sandra is a theoretical test. I would guess that the 128-bit memory configuration will lend an improvement of maybe 1-5%, depending on the benchmark.
