My Semprons... Dual Channel Possible?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Since my Sempron64 only has a single channel memory controller on the chip, does that mean I cant run dual channel if I get another stick of 1024 (Same model)?

You can add more memory and it will run in single channel mode.

The reason behind dual memory and in particular kits, is to provide some assurance that they modules have been tested together for dual mode operation, as sometimes adding another module later on could mean different chips being used and so Dual operation will fail...

So I can't do dual channel?

How big is the performance increase of dual channel?

No, unfortunatley you can't run dual channel. There's a nice bump in performance if you do, but it's certainly not something to worry about if you haven't got it.
