Unganged mode?

Postby Merlin » Tue Mar 15, 2011 9:36 pm

I flashed my BIOS for the 955 BE and my ram now shows to be in Unganged mode. What is that and does it perform as well as ganged mode?

Ganged = dual channel mode for ram. All cores get access to 100% of the ram.

unganged = single channel. Each core gets access to a stick of ram.

I just need clarification here. In CPU-Z it shows dual channel under the tab # of channels. Under the DC mode is where it says Unganged. I looked all thru my bios setting and there is nothing that refers to that. How can a set it back to ganged if that is what I need to do?

self edit...I found a site that said ganged mode is 1x 128 bit memory controller in dual channel...unganged is 2x 64 bit memory controller in dual channel mode. They said unganged is faster but that some benchies will not show that. This is due to the Phenom II having two memory controllers on chip.
