“You hear a lot about memory speed, memory performance, and these big performance gains from fast memory. But no one is ever clear whether that is bandwidth or latency. Even though they might know there is a difference, it makes no sense to talk about memory performance without talking about each of those two dimensions.”

... determining performance for these future devices is going to be an application-specific challenge – and one that involves considering the entire architecture that the memory is hooked into to make a real assessment.
