In high-performance GPUs, the memory bus can easily run at several GHz DDR,
whereas the actual GPU cores run at closer to 1-2GHz. the 8 buses could be
1 bus to each internal GPU core and 256-bit wide to have a single bus have
enough bandwidth at 1GHz to saturate the several GHz DDR external bus speed.

That's my guess anyway...
