    Are you referring to single and dual channel memory modes?

    Well, supposing you are comparing single channel and dual channel memory buses, at the same speed, the dual channel will have double the bandwidth, which will perform better...

    Dual is always better.

    Dual channel= The Best. It reads both sticks of ram at the same time.

    Single Channel=Not as good as Dual.. It just will read the ram stick singlely . so if you have two 512 Ram chips that are single channel it will be slower then Dual channel .
