The JEDEC standard is built around the same standard as the microprocessor. Bits and bytes. Early RAM for microprocessors was used in blocks of 8 chips or more depending on the CPU addressing and accumulator and the number of data lines presented. JEDEC DECIMAL EQUIVALENT KB 1024 MB 1,048,576 GB 1,073,741,824 TB 1,099,511,627,776 PB 1,125,899,906,842,620 …

AMD MEMORY CONSIDERATIONS

AMD logo

AMD Ryzen processors can work with 2 or 4 DIMMs for a dual channel operation. Each DIMM is 64-bit word size so using a pair of them achieves 128-bit width. By comparison enthusiast video cards use a 256-bit memory interface to further increase net bandwidth. Interneaving dynamic memory is the fastest solution. CPU SERIES MAX …
