Need Dual DDR2 667 Memory

The limitation of this Aopen architecture is the single memory bus which is limiting overall memory bandwidth. The 945GM integrated graphics uses the common memory and becomes a bottleneck for the demanding HD perfromance. We tested this architecture on Core Duo (Yonah) and it could not keep up.
