Greetings, retro hardware enthusiasts!
Can you please enlighten me on the subject of performance difference between 32 and 16-bit RDRAM on i850E chipset? Is there anything other than just "dual channel on a single stick"?
Unfortunately, google left me with no answers.

To my knowledge, 32-bit RDRAM modules never exceeded 512 Mb. Because only few motherboards were made for that standard and only with 2 RAM slots, so you're stuck with potential 1 Gb total. Regular 16-bit RDRAM modules were made in capacities up to 1 Gb (for workstations/servers).
