Voor de mensen die willen weten wat zij kunnen verwachten van de nieuwe soorten RAM of overwegen om SDRAM te kopen of nog even te wachten staat er op FiringSquad een artikel over allerlei soorten geheugen van ECC en PC100 tot Rambus en DDR SDRAM
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.
This is where the FS RAM Guide comes in. We'll define some basic technologies of RAM, as well as explain the important terms and jargon that you should know, and what you shouldn't waste your time with. We will hopefully demystify the hype surrounding certain
technology, and tell you what's on the horizon for RAM, now that bus speeds are moving up. Also, which RAM types are looking to take over the new, faster bus speed market? We hope you walk away after reading this article with not only a pretty clear idea of what kind of RAM you will need and want to buy, but also with a
good understanding about what some of this stuff does and how some of it works.
We zitten trouwens al weer bijna aan de 500 nieuwsfeiten (dit is nummer 497), dus het gaat de goede kant op!
