Wanting to findout what kinda ram i need to get for an upgrade. this computer only has 256mb.
Almost all systems used to ship with 3.3 volt, 168-pin
SDRAM is not an extension of older EDO DRAM but a new type
altogether. SDRAM started out running at 66 MHz, while older
page mode DRAM and EDO max out at 50 MHz. SDRAM is able to
133 MHz (PC133) officially, and unofficially up to 180MHz or
As processors get faster, new generations of memory such as
RDRAM are required to get proper performance.
(Double Data Rate SDRAM)
DDR basically doubles the rate of data transfer of
by transferring data on the up and down tick of a clock
memory operating at 333MHz actually operates at 166MHz * 2
PC333 / PC2700) or 133MHz*2 (PC266 / PC2100). DDR is a 2.5
technology that uses 184 pins in its DIMMs. It is
SDRAM physically, but uses a similar parallel bus, making it
to implement than RDRAM, which is a different technology.
