Thread: whats the difference in memory?

    Default whats the difference in memory?

    i wonder what the difference is in two 1gb sticks of memory vs. two 1gb sticks of dual channel memory? i thought any two of the same sticks can be dual channel? does it increase performance if its dual channel or not? can someone explain it?

    There's no such thing as dual-channel memory. Two identical (or close to it) sticks of RAM can be run in dual-channel mode in a compatible system. The RAM itself is not dual-channel. Any RAM advertised as dual-channel is simply two identical sticks sold together to make dual-channel easier and more likely to work (buying two of the same stick will occasionally yield two sticks based off similar, but different memory).
