On the other hand, using OCZ's Reaper HPC PC2-8500 RAM brings us higher PCMark05 mark -- and makes it a little more obvious as well. It seems that Core 2 based platforms really benefits more from RAM bandwidth, despite the fact that the RAM is running at a higher speed (In this case, 2:1) than the CPU FSB.

A minor lead lead in CPU score.

But a very strong lead in memory score.

And wow, even when it comes to graphics!
