We seem to be linking a lot of content by Ars of late, but they're really making it hard not to. This time, Hannibal goes into the details of latency, and its effect on memory bandwidth:
This article should provide you with a useful foundation for understanding bandwidth, latency and performance in a variety of systems and settings.
