Buffered vs. Unbuffered DIMMs
Posted on 2000-03-03
What's the difference?
I'm again trying to understand the many features of computer memory. Boy oh boy! After just a year, there's so much more jargon to worry about regarding simple memory! DIMM, 5V, EDO vs. FPM, 4K refresh vs. 2k refresh, parity vs. non-parity, 60ns, 8x64 vs. 8x72. Now buffered, non-buffered. What's the difference? All I need is the best memory for the lowest price for my PowerMac 9500 with a G3/333 upgrade processor. Even the Kingston web page for generic memory shows FIVE different types of EDO memory that seem to work for my computer. And worse of all, vendor's prices range from $79 to $230 for just ONE 64MB DIMM!! Please help me understand all this *&^@##*!! I just need to get two DIMMs!!
OR is there ONE web site that explains all?
