Default Challenge: What is the significance of 2Rx8 and 1Rx8 on memory/module??

Do you know what 2Rx8 or 1Rx8 stands for?

I have 2 matchin pairs of samsung memory in my PC.

One pair states on the label:

1GB 2Rx8 PC2 5300U - 555 - 12 - E3

The other pair states on the label:

512MB 1Rx8 PC2 5300U - 555 - 12 - ZZ

They seem identical except for the 2Rx8/1Rx8 part and the size.

2Rx8 and subsequently 1R means RANKS so this means, 2 Ranks for x8 SD RAMs

Hello,

Go to Crucial

Memory upgrades, flash media, and usb storage at Crucial.com

there they can scan your PC and tell you what RAM your system can support that will be fully comptabile and work in there flawlessly.

Cheers,
Mak
