Re: Single sided vs Double sided RAM...quick q's...
What makes a memory stick better or faster than the other is the cas latency, or how long it will take the memory to process the data. A cas latency of 3 means 3ms, while a memory with a cas latency of 2 (2ms) will process data 33% faster.
Regarding SIMM and DIMM, I believe the SIMM architecture has been abandonned because of it's poor rating compared to the DIMM modules.
