Benchmarks: Memory

Core i7-3770K is neck-and-neck with Core i7-2700K in terms of memory bandwidth. There's no meaningful difference between the two, and, for reasons unknown to us, the AIDA64 benchmark doesn't appear to appreciate the quad-channel memory configuration of Sandy Bridge Extreme.

Once again, i7-3770K and i7-2700K are on par.

But Intel's under-the-hood enhancements do make a difference in certain areas; memory latency, for one, has been reduced to the tune of around 13 per cent.
