Single sided vs Double Sided Ram

June 8, 2017 at 09:19:37
Specs: Windows 10
I know this is like 7 years too late, but as someone actually studying Ram for the 220-901 Hardware A+ exam , Single sided can have modules on both sides, the rank sends data unified on 1 bus (this is what makes it single sided), Double sided has 2 different ranks that send data independently (one per side) ,so there is a latency delay and therefore less performance oriented as the bus needs to figure out what data is being pulled to what.

This question pulled up with incorrect information as given by users Jam and SkipCox as stating that modules cannot be on both sides to identify double sided Ram.

Both Jam and SkipCox dealt with a stack of posts in their time. I don't know how you can possibly think we can now guess which one you are referring to. All you had to do was swipe the address bar and copy it onto here and we would have had a link to it.

They were both respected helpers, Jam being our #1. It is possible you misread them but give us a link and we can then look into it.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

"he rank sends data unified on 1 bus (this is what makes it single sided), Double sided has 2 different ranks that send data independently (one per side) ". Not necessarily. I'm not the strongest with the hardware, but I'm pretty sure your statement isn't actually correct. I believe you're confusing "sided" with "rank."

Aside from slamming two long-time very helpful members of this site, you may have had more clout if you had been here more than one day and not just joined to criticize and say that answers provided were wrong. Especially considering your statement.

I'll leave it up to one of the more technical people to explain why what you're saying isn't 100% accurate.

Doing the best I can here... And remember, there's always more than one path to success. :)
