That correct, 800MHz dual data rate = 1600 Mhz.

No need to worry. :)

that 1600 is not MHz but MT/s(megatransfers per second).you will not find MHz written after the values 1333,1600,1866,2100 in official product specification or official name.

P.S.this is why net can never be as reliable source as good old books.
