Meer i820 ellende: PC100 en mixed RIMM troubles

Het sprookje over de zaligmakende Camino chipset krijgt wederom een vervolg. Volgens The Register gaan VC820 planken lastig doen wanneer 2 RIMMetjes van verschillende fabrikanten gemixt worden. CC820 borden worden leip wanneer meerdere geheugenbanken gevuld worden met 'onrein' SDRAM:

Although Intel engineers solved the problem by shutting off one of the sockets with a terminator, there is an additional factor which you will need to take into account if you want to populate the beastie.

If you use two RIMMs and they are from different manufacturers, you can expect problems, according to very reliable sources. That will mean that if you are buying or specifying a system that uses the VC820, be very careful that you use the right kind of memory.

And in further i820 news, dealers are reporting what they describe as "serious problems" with CC820 i820 systems. One dealer said: "One piece PC-100 128MB memory seemed to run file, while two pieces easily crashed the system. Intel engineers vehemently claim that there is something wrong with most manufacturers' memory -- they told me 'most of them are more interested in making a buck than in making PC-100 memory according to specs'".

Intel engineers told him that "there are some serious timing issues that will be resolved in later revisions of the chipset".
