What hardware will be reuseable for the new LGA 2011 platform?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
For example, i have 3x2gb DDR3 dominator ram that i would like to reuse. I know that the X68 platform will offer quadchannel memory architecture, but will it support tripple channel as well? Any news leaks about this?

It would be retarded if it didn't.
There would be a hellacious amount of complaints from uninformed people trying to buy one RAM stick as well..

it has quad channelled memory.

so NOTHING is reusable.

Doesn't quad channel mean op just has to buy one more (dominator) stick?

Ugh, does anyone have a dominator memory stick for sale?

Well, if i could just plug in my tripple channel kit and then forget about it, i would be happy.

Triple channel kit plus a single doesn't equal Quad channelling memory

U liek trol?

So, let me explain how this would work. Quad-channel, like triple channel, should be backward compatible. Depending on how the motherboard manufacturer develops the motherboard, chanells (1,3) will be dual channel, (1,3,5) will be triple channel, and (1,3,5,7) will be quad-channel.

As far as adding an extra stick of Dominator, you could get quad-channel out of it, but it's recommended to have identically batched RAM sticks for maximum performance. You cannot mix memory brand or serial numbers and expect it to work (though it might with a different serial if it comes from a different size kit).

Please stop trolling.

There's no difference between a standard DDR3 stick of RAM and one of the sticks from a "Triple Channel" memory package. It's merely a marketing tactic if anything.

3x sticks will work, however you'll only be able to take advantage of 3 channels on the IMC.
