Correlation between PCxxxx and xxxMhz on RAM

A friend and I were talking about RAM, and we were trying to figure
something out. With the DDR RAM, what exactly is the correlation
between the PC #'s (ie PC2700) and the Mhz (ie 333 Mhz) Why not just
refer to them by Mhz like before? Just to confuse us ? :p I noticed
that if you divide the PC # by the Mhz it is in the vicinity of 8, but
it's not always the same number.
Any help to lessen the confusion would be appreciated. :)
Thanx

Hmm, DIMMs are eight bytes (64bits) wide. Odd that correlation. ;-)
