unbuffered memory.

by Jonmullen In reply to unbuffered memory.

The best way to describe what unbuffered memory is to describe what buffered memory is.
Buffered memory modules are designed for systems with larger number of module slots. There is a physical difference in the ?keying notches? on both types of themodules and the system memory sockets which help ensure that only the correct kind of module can be installed into the system. On buffered modules there are special buffer chips on the module that control the way the memory is accessed. Buffer chipsare usually smaller than the main DRAM memory chips.

Unbuffered memory utilizes buffers off the module, usually located on the motherboard and is very common in desktop applications.
Buffered memory is usually only needed in servers and other high traffic computers.
