The objective of the Intel validation program is to verify SDRAM compliance to Intel specifications for and performance of supported DDR memory modules in Intel reference systems. The results of validation procedures provide a guideline for memory compatibility with Intel ® processor integrated memory controllers.
This validation, performed by approved test labs on small samples of components and modules, is intended to demonstrate supplier design and manufacturing capability.
The validation process uses standardized procedures and methodologies documented in the Intel validation procedure for DDRx. This documented procedure is not intended to replace the normal product qualification process.
