    Hello everyone! I have been using my laptop, Dell Inspiron 1464, since 2011. It came with pre-installed Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. Sometime around 2013, I accidentally limited my RAM to a mere 256 MB (original size - 4 GB) from inside the windows, and not from the BIOS. This prevented my...

  9. Discussion Clarifying Ryzen 3000 memory overclocking

    AMD's marketing on Ryzen 3000 DRAM overclocking has been confusing at best, in some instances saying the DRAM clock is decoupled from the Infinity Fabric, and in others that the IF clock (seemingly) runs at half the speed beyond 3733 MT/s. While both are partially true, neither actually fully...

    Question Laptop Memory Speed Faster than its Specification. Will These Modules Work at the Speed it Says?

    I recently had to exchange my new MSI GF63 (may it forever be missed) for a Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14 due to extremely poor battery life (and no real need for a dGPU). Anyways, I knew upon getting the Flex 14 that it would have shared memory with the Vega 8 iGPU. I looked in task manager to see how...
