Memory timings or RAM timings measure


  • Memory timings or Slam timings measure the execution of Measure memory utilizing four parameters: CL, TRCD, TRP, and TRAS in units of clock cycles; they are regularly composed as four numbers isolated with dashes, e.g. 7-8-8-24. The fourth (tRAS) is regularly excluded, and a fifth, the Order rate, infrequently included (ordinarily 2T or 1T - likewise 2N, 1N). These parameters determine the latencies (time delays) that influence speed of arbitrary get to memory. Bring down numbers for the most part infer speedier execution. What decides outright framework execution is genuine inertness time, normally measured in nanoseconds. 

  • While making an interpretation of memory timings into real dormancy, take note of that they are in units of clock cycles, which for twofold information rate memory is a large portion of the speed of the normally cited exchange rate. 

  • For instance, DDR3-2000 memory has a 1000 MHz clock recurrence, which yields a 1 ns clock cycle. With this 1 ns clock, CL=7 gives an outright dormancy of 7 ns. Speedier DDR3-2666 (with a 1333 MHz clock, or ~0.75 ns per cycle), even with a more extended CL=9, gives a shorter total inactivity of ~6.75 ns. 

  • Advanced DIMMs incorporate a Serial Nearness Recognize (SPD) ROM chip that contains suggested memory timings for programmed arrangement. The BIOS on a PC may permit the client to try to expand execution (with conceivable danger of diminished soundness) or, sometimes, to build dependability (by utilizing proposed timings). 

  • Note: Memory data transfer capacity measures the throughput of memory, and is firmly identified with memory timings. It is feasible for advances in data transfer capacity innovation to undesirably affect dormancy. For instance, DDR memory has been superseded by DDR2, but then DDR2 has fundamentally higher inactivity at similar clock frequencies. Be that as it may, DDR2 can be timed quicker, diminishing its process duration. Presently DDR2 has been superseded by DDR3 and DDR4, and the pattern of a higher idleness combined with a higher clock speed has proceeded. 

  • Expanding memory transfer speed, even while expanding memory inactivity, can enhance the execution of a PC framework with numerous processors, furthermore frameworks with processors that have different execution strings. Higher data transfer capacity will likewise help execution of coordinated illustrations that have no devoted video memory.
