    At which point you're measuring the cache speed not the memory speed.

    Which probably explains this result. Do a quick sanity check - this number
    seems to indicate 20 bytes per memory clock, EVERY clock - either there's
    some VERY creative use of prefetching to make sure that you never hit a
    cache line miss, or you're measuring the cache.. ;)
