Re: Matched memory for Turion x2 TL-52?
According to this, your processor has a dual channel interface.
Which is hard to believe when there are only 638 contacts
on the socket. But the second link does seem to agree.
Particulars of the TL-52:
If the sticks don't match, then the processor could use
virtual single channel mode. To test the difference, simply
remove one of the existing sticks. Operating with a
single stick, will be an emulation of what to expect when two
sticks that don't match are used. If the OS isn't too greedy,
maybe you can fit a small benchmark program, like maybe SuperPI,
and do a "before vs after" with one or two sticks of RAM. SuperPI
does access RAM, as part of its calculations, so the impact of
one versus two sticks should make a difference.
