That is correct for "1600 MHz DDR3 RAM". The "1600 MHz" in actuality is "1600 MT/s" [MegaTransfers] since you get one transfer on the high side and one on the low side with DDR, so 800 MHz clock rate = 1600 MT/s. But because of marketing (bigger number = better) and technicalities being difficult to understand, the MT/s is usually just shown as a MHz number on the package, even if it is not correct. :)
