What does 555 mean in PC2-5300u 555
Okay, I'm not a newbie to computers, but I've always been the kinda guy who does things without knowing the technical terms for things.
I know that the pc2-5300 means the memory has a speed of 667MHZ. But I think this memory was actually labeled as 555MHz. Does anybody know what is up with that?
I have seen this a lot in memory I have ordered to put in computers. It will have a u after the pc2-####, and then have a number a little lower than the ram's speed after that.
What does this number mean, and does it mean that the memory will perform slower than memory labeled pc2-5300 667MHz?
I feel like an a-- for asking this considering I used to be so big in computers that I was upgrading my Windows 3.1 computer to 4MB (back when that was A TON of memory) by myself at age 13. I guess around then I became more interested in curves than computers.
Thanks for anyone who can help.
