What type of memory does an Intel Pentium 4 motherboard support?

Depending on its age, either SDR SDRAM, DDR, or DDR2 RAM.

What type of memory can you use for an Intel Pentium III?

Virtually all Pentium III systems used either PC100 or PC133 SDRAM.

What type of RAM would a computer with an Intel Pentium 4 1.7 GHz processor have?

Motherboards of that era would have had a either a combination of the older SDR SDRAM (PC100 or PC133 RAM) and DDR SDRAM, or just DDR SDRAM.For best performance, you would want to use the DDR slots.

Are SDR SDRAM modules still available for Intel Pentium III PCs?

Yes. You can still find them on eBay, and in limited quantities from some online retailers.

Is SDRAM compatible with a Pentium 4 motherboard?

Yes it seems that the older p4 mother boards came with the SDRAM slot. But the newer ones don't seem to come with the SDRAM slot, they have ddr slots now.

What is the actual term for computer memory sdram?

The actual term for computer memory SDRAM is Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory. You can learn more about SDRAM online at the Wikipedia website.

What are the reasons behind the fact that RIMMs are quickly becoming a legacy memory?

When Intel was developing the Pentium 4, they knew that regular SDRAM just wasn't going to be fast enough to handle the quad-pumped 400MHz frontside bus. Intel announced plans to replace SDRAM with a very fast,new type of RAM developed by RAMBUS, Inc. called Rambus Dram, or simply RDRAM. Intel thought it would be the next great leap in DRAM technology, RDRAM could handle speeds up to 800MHz, which gave Intel of room to improve the Pentium 4. RDRAM was greatly anticipated, but industry support RDRAM proved less than enthusiastic due to significant delays in development, plus a price many times that of SDRAM. At first all major PC makers sold systems that used RDRAM-for a while. RAMBUS ran into three roadblocks that betamaxed it(made it obsolete because no one bought it). First, the technology was solely owned by RAMBUS, if you wanted to make it you had to pay a licensing fees they charged. Secondly it was too expensive, it cost substantially more than SDRAM. Finally, RAMBUS and Intel made a completely closed deal for the technology. RDRAM worked only on Pentium 4 systems using Intel-made Memory Controller Chips. AMD was out of luck. So the rest of the industry had to look for a another high speed resolution. So then DDR came along and now there is DDR2 and DDR3 which is cheaper.

My computer specs say DDR SDRAM will it be able to support DDR as well or just DDR SDRAM?

The term DDR SDRAM refers to the phrase "double data rate synchronous dynamic random access memory". DDR SDRAM is simply a faster version of SDRAM in which data travels at a double rate. If your computer specs say that it uses DDR SDRAM it can take DDR SDRAM, but not SDRAM. DDR is 184 pins and has a notch in the bottom near the center and you will be unable to put DDR in an SDRAM mother board and also unable to put SDRAM in a DDR motherboard. Recently a new type of RAM has been introduced to market called DDR2. DDR2 is its own type and will not fit into a DDR motherboard. Hope this helps. Peace.

Will installing ddr sdram speed up my computer?

Installing DDR SDRAM on your computer will actually make your computer run faster,and will make it easier to run multiple applications at once.

What can you purchase to increase the amount of RAM on an Intel Pentium III computer?

A memory module. Your system would likely support between 1 and 4 memory slots (2 or three is the most common). In these slots, you could install up to a 256 MB module of PC133 SDRAM. If you purchase RAM, make sure you get what is called "low-density." Many eBay sellers try to sell "high density" memory, which is a slow and cheap RAM compatible with very few motherboards.

What is the maximum amount of RAM supported by an Intel D845GLLY motherboard?

The Intel D845GLLY motherboard supports a maximum of 2GB of PC133 SDRAM, using two 1 GB modules.

If a motherboard can support sdram or edo which would result in better performance?

If you had to choose one then you would chooes SDRAM. it is faster than EDO

Can you use DDR-2 ram in Pentium 4?

While the particular type of RAM in a Pentium 4 system is dependent on the Northbridge version used, NOT the particular Pentium 4 CPU, there have been some Northbridge chipsets with DDR2 support. Originally, the P4 chipsets used SDR (Single Data Rate) SDRAM. About 2001, DDR (Double Data Rate) SDRAM support was included in some Northbridge chipsets. Around 2004, DDR2 SDRAM was added for certain chipsets. Support for DDR2 in a particular system is completely dependent on the Northbridge chipset. In general, only chipsets which supported the LGA775 socket format (which accepts only later model P4 CPUs - those with the Prescott or Cedar Mills designs) will have DDR2 support. This means that only 2004 or later motherboards really have any chance of supporting DDR2. Please check the motherboard manual for your system to see if it supports DDR2. If it does NOT explicitly state DDR2 (not just DDR), then it WILL NOT WORK.

How do you replace sdram into ddr?

In order to upgrade SDRAM with DDR, you will need to replace your motherboard. DDR uses a different slot than SDRAM, so if your motherboard is using SDRAM currently, you will most likely have to replace your motherboard in order to make your system support DDR.

If you motherboard supports ecc sdram memory can you substitute sdram memory that does not support ecc?

Depending on the specs of the motherboard, a motherboard that supports ECC SDRAM may support a non-ECC SDRAM module. If a motherboard can support both types, you would have the option to enable or disable the ECC feature in BIOS. Other than the fact that an ECC module has an odd number of chips, there is no other physical difference on the module. They are keyed the same.

Difference between sdram and ddrram?

In electronic engineering, DDR2 SDRAM or double-data-rate two synchronous dynamic random access memory is a random access memory technology used for high speed storage of the working data of a computer or other digital electronic device.It is a part of the SDRAM (synchronous dynamic random access memory) family of technologies, which is one of many DRAM (dynamic random access memory) implementations, and is an evolutionary improvement over its predecessor, DDR SDRAM.Its primary benefit is the ability to operate the external data bus twice as fast as DDR SDRAM. This is achieved by improved bus signaling, and by operating the memory cells at half the clock rate (one quarter of the data transfer rate), rather than at the clock rate as in the original DDR. DDR2 memory at the same clock speed as DDR will provide the same bandwidth but markedly higher latency, providing worse performance.DDR is for computer with Pentium 4 processor DDR2 is for computer with dual core or core2 duo processor SDRAM is for Pentium 3 it means that computer with dual core cannot use DDR or SDRAM it's not convert... yavila vmarshburn

Can you put sdram in a ddr sdram system?

No. SDRAM and DDR SDRAM are not compatible with each other.

What is DDR2 SDRAM?

A type of computer memory. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DDR2

Can you use pc2 6400 sdram in a computer using pc2 5300 sdram?

Yes. But it might only run as fast as pc2 5300 sdram. The number indicates the guaranteed speed of the RAM stick: see: http://www.valuemedia.co.uk/ddr.htm

Can ddram and sdram be used together on one computer?

Sorry.. its either / or syndrome. If the motherboard, has DDR then it would be best to utilise this. As it is probably twice as fast as normal SDRam.

Can you upgrade 256mb pc133 SDram to 512mb PC133 sdram?

Yes, provided you computer BIOS (Basic Input Output System) supports it you can upgrade to any amount

What is the definition of memory SDRAM?

The acronym "SDRAM" stands for synchronous dynamic random-access memory. It is a computing term which simply refers to the memory chip contained within a computer.

Is pc133 ram or sdram?

PC133 is an SDRAM standard. SDRAM is a type of RAM.
