AFAIK the bridges are not connected to each other through FSB.
And at the top of the article, it basically says that (and shows it in a drawing).
A similar contention question left open is that of contention in the Northbridge. Can that be a bottleneck? And what is it for, anyway? One could imagine the memory controller being directly on the FSB.
