|DRAM? SDRAM ?|
||If a SDRAM DIMM module is assembled with a -10 SDRAM chip, is it considered PC100 compatible?
||No - An SDRAM DIMM with -10 (100 MHz) chip will support only 66 MHz Systems. This type of module is not guaranteed to run consistently in a PC100, 100 MHz system.
In order for the module to be PC100 compatible the components need to be marked with -8A, -8B, -8C, -8D or -8E (or 125 MHz)and example taken from micron chips.
Micron Modules with -8A through -8C sdram chips will run at 100 MHz at a CAS latency of 3.
Modules with -8D or -8E components will run at 100 MHz at a CAS latency of 2.
Refer to the original manufacturer data sheet to determined the correct CAS latency setting.
