I'm not a technical thug, so I do not know many about recent chipsets.
I just build up a ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe based AMD64 sytem, socket 939,
AMD 64 3500+ (Winchester), 2 GB ECC RAm for some numerical calculations.
2GByte DDR400 RAM seems to become available within the next few months
and I though about increasing the avaiable memory in my AMD64 box -if
Socket 939 mainboards do have several benefits compared to Socket 940 boards
(for single chip mahines, not SMP), especially PCIe. So that is the
reason why I
decided to obtain a Socket 939 machine.
Will it be possible to address more than 4GBytes of RAM with the above
board (nVidia nForce4-SLI chipset)? The limitations are settled in the
I think. AMD64 processores only address 4 memory slots and can not
memory chips, as I found in the net so maximum memroy capacity is 4GB
1GB modules. But what is about 2GB modules as I mentioned above? Will it
to just increase or double the memory? Especially for our scientific
are hungry of memory, this would be a great benefit ...
Thnaks in advance,
