tells you if a computer which is dual channel capable is actually
running in dual channel memory mode? I will be putting two "different
but similar" memory modules into a Toshiba A105 and want to know if they
are similar enough to run dual channel.
[Different but similar - One module made by Elpida, one by Hynix, but as
far as I can outwardly tell, both have the exact same specs, including
as many of the timing specs as I can identify, and both apparently have
the same internal organization.]
Re: Dual channel memory
The latest version of Memtest86+ (version 1.65) does display this
information (whether or not a potentially dual-channel memory system is
actually operating in dual channel mode).
Most laptops (this was a Toshiba A105) do not display any system or
status messages at startup, nor in most cases is there an option to do so.
