The latest wave of motherboard chipsets from Nvidia (680i) and ATI (RD600) have brought with them an interesting feature called memory 'unlinking'. This allows for the memory speed to be run independently of the CPU's front-side bus, and essentially allows us to benchmark memory at various speeds without changing any other system settings such as CPU speed. This feature has been used in the benchmarks below, and for this reason results in these tests cannot be compared with any results from previous OC3D reviews.
