Re: Memory Frequency inconsistent with BIOS setting
DDR = Double Data Rate.
RAM speed works in conjunction with the front side bus (FSB) of a computer system. The FSB is the two-way data channel that sends information from the central processing unit (CPU) throughout the motherboard to the various components, including the RAM, BIOS chips, hard drives and PCI slots. Therefore, a computer system with a FSB of 133MHz running DR SDRAM will essentially perform like a 266MHz machine
What is DDR Ram?
