   "Dual channel" refers to the motherboard/processor/memory controller and
not to the memory modules themselves. When manufactures sell "dual channel"
memory, what they mean is that the modules are compatible with dual channel
memory systems. There is nothing special about the modules other than that
they are the same (size, timing, row/column layout, banks, etc).
