|Hey, you're the one that started this thread & you're the one that claimed to know all about single vs double sided. You also chose the name "Big E Custom PC" which sounds like it could be the name of a computer shop, so it would seem that you came here as an expert to set all of us straight.|
I gave you my answer which I believe to be correct:
single sided = memory chips on one side of RAM module
double sided = memory chips on both sides of RAM module
There is no rocket science involved in trying to figure it out. The rest of the crap you went on about involves "ranking" & that is a completely different issue. I posted a link that explains what that is all about. The following was taken from your favorite site to plagiarize, Wikipedia...it describes what single & double sided RAM is & how the terms *may* cause confusion when it comes to ranking:
"DIMMs are often referred to as "single-sided" or "double-sided" to describe whether the DRAM chips are located on one or both sides of the module's printed circuit board (PCB). However, these terms may cause confusion, as the physical layout of the chips does not necessarily relate to how they are logically organized or accessed."
It goes on to say that: "JEDEC decided that the terms "dual-sided," "double-sided," or "dual-banked" were not correct when applied to registered DIMMs."
I'm sure you know what JEDEC is AND the difference between registered & un-registered DIMMs.
