Default Motherboard that supports dual channel.

How will I know if a motherboard supports dual channel? Is it indicated on the name of the motherboard or something like that?

no, check the user manual. and also, if it has color coded memory slots thats a sign that it does, not for sure though.

well if its AMD, then only sockets 939 and AM2 support dual channel. anything older (socket A, 754) doesn't support dual channel..


as for intel, i'm not entirely sure.. i just know for sure socket 775 supports dual channel, i don't know if the older ones do or not
