Who needs memory bandwidth?

One of the main differentiators between the new M2 MBAs and the M1Pro MBPs is now not the screen (both have notch), not the processor (m2 singnle core getting close to m1pro single core), not the ram (both go above 16 now), nor the form factor..but…memory bandwidth!

The memory bandwidth for the Pro laptops is nearly double that of the Air, and for the Max it exceeds double.

But what is memory bandwidth? Who does it benefit? During which tasks does having higher memory bandwidth really shine?
