System memory features

  • 1.5V DDR3 SDRAM SO-DIMMs with gold plated contacts.
  • Support for 1.35V low voltage DDR3, a new JEDEC specification.
  • Two independent memory channels with interleaved mode support.
  • Unbuffered, single-sided, or double-sided SO-DIMMs.
  • 16 GB maximum total system memory, with 4 GB memory technology.
  • Minimum recommended total system memory is 1024 MB.
  • Non-ECC SO-DIMMs.
  • Serial Presence Detect.
  • XMP profile support for voltage detection.
  • DDR3 1600 MHz, DDR3 1333 MHz SDRAM SO-DIMMs.

For full compliance with applicable Intel SDRAM memory specifications, the board requires DIMMs supporting the Serial Presence Detect (SPD) structure. The BIOS can then read the SPD data and program the chipset to accurately configure memory settings for optimum performance. If non-SPD memory is installed, the BIOS tries to correctly configure the memory settings. Performance and reliability can be impacted or the SO-DIMMs might not function.
