Memory performance - con't
The following Cachemem latency graphs are a little indulgent, but they do a good job of highlighting access latency across various block and step sizes. The Core 2 Duo runs out of on-chip cache after a block size of 4096KB, so you'll want to pay more attention to the memory access latencies that follow with larger block sizes.
I've arranged the following graphs in order of highest to lowest latency with a common Z-axis to aid comparison. These access latency results are from our two-DIMM system configurations.
The nForce 570 SLI has all sorts of problems with memory access latency, especially when compared with the competition.
