Maybe...but AFAIK these days sometimes people confusingly
interchangeably use "b" and "B", "G" and "Gi" without really knowing
what they really mean. Of course, I don't mean Mag must be falling
into the same trap.

But assuming it's really "b", it means it is around 3.75 GiB/s... that
could be lower if he refer to "G", not "Gi"...
