What does So Dimm ram mean?
Small-Outline Double In-Line Memory Module,
DIMM just refers to 64bit RAM
SODIMM = Laptop Ram
DIMM = Dekstop Ram
The difference between DDR and DIMM is that DDR is a type of RAM chip that is used on a DIMM module. RAM is Random Access Memory, which is used by a computer to store short term data (information) DIMM stands for Dual Inline Memory Module and is the physical part of the computer where the RAM chip is stored
There are several different formats of RAM, including different types for PCs and laptops. Laptops typically require SO-DIMM RAM, while PCs typically require some form of DIMM RAM. SO-DIMMs have a varying number of pins from 100 to 256, the number of pins relates and notch spacing relates to the memory capability. DIMMs vary in pin numbers from 72 to 284.
The banks themselves don't really look all that different. It's usually better to research the make and model of the motherboard to figure out what it has. The modules themselves are easy. DIMMs have their RAM chips on both sides, whereas SIMMs are only blessed with RAM chips on one side. In reality pretty much every motherboard made within well over a decade only has a DIMM memory bank, so it may not be worth…
A dimm slot on a computer motherboard is used to add extended memory or Ram ( random access memory ) all motherboards have a minimum and maximum amount of memory and memory speed which can be used.The more memory in a computer system the greater the performance especially for video rendering and other high end tasks. Computer motherboards have different types of dimm slots which use different types of memory and memory speeds. examples are…
What is the difference between SDRAM and DIMM because I want to buy a new computer and it says it takes DDR2 SDRAM but when i search he net i find DIMMs. Will the DIMM work?
You're computer will require a "DDR2 SDRAM DIMM". DDR2 SDRAM is the type of memory you are after, it is also a DIMM. Most modern memory are all DIMM's (Dual inline memory module), much older ram were SIMMS (single ingline memory module). DIMM refers more to the physical make up of the module (DIMMS have contacts on both sides of the module). So any DDR2 SDRAM that you buy IS a dimm. You may want…
computer build/repair stores will usually stock new RAM, and all the common RAM at (increasingly rare) computer specialty stores. if you are looking for old RAM or that is not commonly found in house computers, online stores will be your best bet. (amazon, fry's online, etc.) also remember there are several types of ram, so make sure you know the type (normally DIMM)(ddr-XXXX) and if it is registered(r) or buffered before you buy unsupported ram.
