Voor wie niet helemaal meer weet hoe het zit met de geheugen types heeft Tresh's FiringSquad een memory guide in elkaar geknutseld met info over allerlei geheugen varianten. PC100, DDR, Rambus, CAS, ECC enz.
When we think of upgrades for our computers, the most commonly thought of part is probably the CPU. After all, who can resist the latest 500-600+ MHz Intel and AMD offerings? Additionally, there have been great steps made in the 3D video field, with the 3dFX and Nvidia battle, and also in the sound arena, with A3D vs. EAX. But what about RAM? Undoubtedly, RAM is one of the most important functional parts in a computer, especially for those of us who are overclockers. At the same time, though, RAM probably has some of the least exposure.
For example, when buying new RAM, do you want SIMMs or DIMMs? What's all this talk of 8 ns, or 10 ns? EDO or SDRAM? ECC? What is the difference between asynchronous and synchronous, or all the hype of CAS2 and CAS3? All of these questions and more are important considerations when buying RAM, and making incorrect decisions about RAM can sometimes cause mysterious problems with your system. On the flipside, some consumers are probably spending more on hyped-up RAM technology than they should, when this money can be spent on other upgrades.
