I suspect the difference is related to chip stacking and that multiple 4G chips are stacked to may one final commercial memory module. . . .

It seems odd to me that Samsung's 4Gb array of cells each of which store 3 bits multiplies out to 32Gb. 4Gb x 3 = 12Gb. My understanding is that each cell of a 3 bit/cell memory stores 8 levels but that this is still only equivalent to 3 bits. How can Samsung and other MLC manufacturers get away with what seems to be deceptive labeling?
