Address/Control Groups can only be used in inner column banks to meet the clock jitter requirements for the memory. The center banks have the shortest physical connection from the MMCM to the output pins using the performance clock path CLKPERF which provides the lowest amount of jitter. In addition, minimizing the clock jitter is critical to get the best possible read capture window as the input clock jitter at the memory is generally reflected back to the DQ outputs.
