Memory Speed

  Greengage 14:36 12 May 2006

I have read some previous queries on this subject in this forum but remain confused. I built a computer about 18 months ago buying a job lot "factory built" motherboard, Sempron Socket A 2600 processor,512mb 3200 DDR 400 memory. I have just noticed through Everest and again through CPUID that my memory frequency/speed is shown as 200 - processor shows core speed 1833, multiplier 11, FSB 166 & bus Speed 333. This does not seem right to me - is there anything I should be altering in the BIOS to get the 400 speed?

you system is running at it's right speed.;-)

The cpu @133 Mhz click here and the memory @ 200mhz is fine. The motherboard clocks these at X 2. So the cpu is 333Mhz and the memory 400Mhz.

So all is fine.

That's what DDR actually means - Double Data Rate - the double refers to the x2 mentioned by ed-0
