In general, a memory bank is smth related to the way the physical RAM
memory is organized. I don't know how many banks current memory have,
but you can see it as smth similar to dual/quad/hocto channel at the
RAM module or chip level.

A widl guess tells me it's smth close.

In french, this kind of "bank" is the same the same word as the place
where you get your money robbed (I don't like banks, but what can I
do, you can't live with, you can't live without!).
