Many experts in our embedded industry will try to convince you that a “by-8” (x8) DRAM module is superior to a “by-16” (x16) module. In some respects, those experts would be right. But it’s not always the case, as we will show you here. In most configurations, the x8 module will yield higher bandwidths compared to the x16 configuration.
