  •     General Overview Of The Motherboards
  • L’article commence ainsi :

    At the beginning of the year, we tested Athlon64 boards to see how they cope with double-sided memory modules, and the results were not uniformly pretty. A few of the test candidates simply did not pass the muster. However, vendors have had several weeks since then to hone the memory compatibility capabilities of their products.

    We have now put 13 different memory modules and 14 motherboards to THG’s exhaustive tests. The aim? To gain a comprehensive overview of how the latest Athlon64 (CO and CG steppings) mobos handle 1-GB of main memory.

    The Athlon64’s memory controller is subject to a restriction that should not be underestimated, especially by the ambitious user: according to AMD’s specification, it does not have the capability to operate two double-sided memory modules with a 200 MHz clock rate (DDR400 alias PC3200). According to the data sheet, a maximum configuration of 166 MHz or DDR333 is allowed in such devices. But who is going to buy a powerful processor only to nip its potential in the bud with slow memory?
