The VW 320 and 540 use 288-bit wide synchronous DRAM, clocked
at 100MHz.  288 bits means it's not your everyday PC SDRAM.
That's 256 bits for data and 32 for ECC.  256bits = 32 bytes
at 100MHz = 3.2GB/sec theoretically possible between the 
memory system and Cobalt, the memory controller/graphics
ASIC.
