1 RAM Module -VS- 2 RAM Modules? Performance?
Posted on 2004-10-19
I currently have 2 168-pin dimm slots, one of which is being used by a 256 MB DDR RAM module, therefore my total system memory is only 256 MB, and I have only one slot available.
I would like to upgrade to 512 MB.
My question is this:
Is performance affected when two RAM modules are installed? In other words, would my system achieve better performance by installing a single 512 MB RAM module, versus two 256 MB RAM modules? The cheaper solution is to just buy one 256 MB module, but what about performance?
Thank you for your time!
