BIOS Option Of The Week - DRAM Burst Length 8QW

Posted on Saturday, December 08 2012 @ 16:27:38 CET by

This week TechARP discusses the DRAM Burst Length 8QW BIOS setting, you can learn about it over here.
This BIOS feature allows you to control the length of a burst transaction.

When this feature is set to Disabled, a burst transaction can only comprise of up to four quadword (QW) reads or writes.

When this feature is set to Enabled, a burst transaction can only comprise of up to eight quadword (QW) reads or writes.

As the initial CAS latency is fixed for each burst transaction, a longer burst transaction will allow more data to be read or written for less delay than a shorter burst transaction. Therefore, a burst length of 8 will be faster than a burst length of 4.

Therefore, it is recommended that you enable this BIOS feature for better performance.
