Article Summary: This article contains information regarding supported memory configurations for the Precision Workstation T3500.
The Precision T3500 uses 1066 MHz and 1333Mhz DDR3 unbuffered SDRAM memory. DDR3 SDRAM or double-data-rate three synchronous dynamic random access memory is a random access memory technology. It is a part of the SDRAM family of technologies, which is one of many DRAM (dynamic random access memory) implementations, and is an evolutionary improvement over its predecessor.
Its primary benefit is the ability to run its I/O bus at four times the speed of the memory cells it contains, thus enabling faster bus speeds and higher peak throughputs than earlier technologies. This is achieved at the cost of higher latency. Also, the DDR3 standard allows for chip capacities of 512 megabit to 8 gigabit, effectively enabling memory modules of maximum 16 gigabyte in size.
A secondary benefit of DDR3 comes from the higher bandwidth made possible by DDR3's 8 bit deep prefetch buffer, whereas DDR2's is 4 bits, and DDR's is 2 bits deep.
The Precision Workstation T3500 can support from 1GB to 24GB of memory, however, it must be installed in certain configurations. Below you will find a chart that explains how to install the memory for different size configurations.
