New MacBooks/MacBook Pros cannot support 8GB RAM?

Sort of, chip supplier Ramjet ran a few tests and found that those new MacBooks/MacBook Pros acted weirdly on 8GB RAM configurations!

That’s the only bad news so far but rest assured that those new MacBooks/MacBook Pros work well in 6GB RAM configurations.
Ramjet's tests and previous experiences by others have shown that 8GB of RAM in a notebook throws OS X into fits, making it unstable for actual use. Ramjet claims though that 6GB is a screamer—utilizing a fresh new 4GB 1066 SO-DIMM paired with a 2GB; the performance gained by having an extra two gigs negates the performance loss that tends to follow from having an unmatched pair of differently sized modules.
