ViA Chipset query

I just ran Everest a while ago and noticed that the chipset bandwidth is only 8 bits wide!

This sounds very dated to me as both memory and FSB data bandwidth is 64 bits.
Does this mean that generally speaking chipsets are based on antiquated technology?

If so I hope things improve next year when I upgrade to a 64 bit PC!

I guess it really is a trivial matter then as the very latest technology (64 bit) only uses 16 bit bandwidth in it's chipsets.
