(PassMark) MemTest's bandwidth reporting seems heavily dependent on core memory port resources and may be sensitive to NUMA effects. For example, my 3600X reports ~25GB/s and 16GB/s for L3 and RAM respectively, while my 5650GE reports ~85 and 35. Both DDR3-3200 ECC, JEDEC timing, 1R Micron and 2R Hynix respectively. Interesting, but chances are those results will not answer any other question than "What is PassMark's MemTest86 bandwidth number?". Anything more useful would be... unwieldy to quote.
