    The processor and memory score always seem to match, just before this test they were were both 8.1, before that both 8.2.

    My memory score is @ 7.9 on Windows 7 x64 Ultimate, its as you've been told it has more to do with the memory speed and timing, the higher the memory speed and tighter timing the more probability of having a higher score as generally the memory performs faster, the capacity increase is also good mostly if you are in video editing and encoding as I am the more memory comes in handy.

    My score RAM is Corsair vengeance 2 x 4GB @ 1600 9.9.9.24

    for the 11teenthbillionth time
    WEI is meaningless
    seriously why people care about it I will never understand
    WEI tests ram by copying a file back and forth its less effective then pissing on a storm-drain in a rainstorm it means NOTHING

    If this concerns your E2-1800 laptop, it's likely because the CPU only has a single channel memory controller for the entire APU.
    OneMoar says thanks.

    How is 8G overkill? Today, 8G is the norm...

    8GB in a netbook is overkill. Though the G585 being a netbook is arguable...

    id call it a netbook its not fast enough for me to consider it a full laptop
    I have 8GB in this machine and I always have at least 3GB free no matter what I am playing or doing
