On the other hand, it is quite logical, no :)
Actually the fsb runs natively at 100Mhz, but it is quad pumped to reach 400Mhz.
So it would seem logical to me that its impossible for the chipset to run the
memory at 333Mhz (not a multiple of 100Mhz), but instead it runs at 200Mhz.

I also wonder why nobody goes for dual channel ram in laptops, it seems like
a good idea to me :)
