AMD Socket AM2 memory controller has some problems

Posted on Monday, May 22 2006 @ 19:46:16 CEST by

It looks like the AMD Socket AM2 processor memory controller has some math problems:
It seems that AMD's memory controller has a bit of a maths problem. It has a habit of downclocking the system memory by a notch or two. Nothing serious, of course, it's just a matter of the fact that the HyperTransport divider is set at "5", and the number it is dividing is 1000. As we all know, 1000MHz is the actual clock of HyperTransport links. So, AMD works at "200" as a base, which is great if you have memory running at 200MHz, 400MHz, 600MHz, 800MHz, 1000MHz, and 1200MHz and so on.
More details over at The Inquirer.
