RAMList - About RAMList

Back to menu

RAMList is a section of the CTCL website dedicated to listing the components, specifically the DRAM ICs, that computer memory modules use.

Note: Lists that do not focus on memory module such as mobile devices and storage devices may not be updated as often as they are not the original focus of RAMList.

Why?

CTCL's RAMList was originally made to continue the memory module list (RAM List) at ramlist.i4memory.com that seemed to become unavailable some time in 2016.

Knowing specifically the memory ICs contained on a memory module or system may help with:

Glossary

Data sizes

RAMList always differeniates between bits and bytes. This is only for RAM devices and not for storage.

Clock rate

Hertz is a meaure of frequency

Acronyms

RAMList may make extensive use of acronyms mainly relating to computers. Acronyms used for company names are not included here.

Rank Count

RAMList follows the common scheme of describing the amount of ranks and bit-widths of the module. Sometimes, the amount of ICs (integrated circuits) are specified.

For example:

Timings

RAMList follows this order when describing memory timings, unless specified.

CL-tRCD-tRP-tRAS-CR

Company name special cases

Hynix/SK hynix

In 2001, Hyundai Group split, forming Hynix Electronics In 2012, Hynix was acquired by SK group, changing the company name to SK hynix.

Infineon/Qimonda

In 1999, Siemens spun-off Infineon Technologies for semiconductor production In 2006, Infineon Technologies spun-off Qimonda for computer memory production

For conistency, RAMList would use this rule with specific memory generations:

With the acquistion of Cypress Semiconductor in 2019, Infineon Technologies started producing certain DRAM types for embedded devices:

Brand Names

Some memory companies may have brand names or separate companies (subsidiaries). These would be treated as "IC Brand" and the company producing the IC would be used as the "IC Die Vendor".

Micron Technology:

Qimonda/Infineon:

Nanya Technology (Formosa Plastics Group):

Powerchip:

Legal and Accuracy

Overclocking info

RAMList purposely does not include information on what ICs perform "better" in overclocking than others as the focus of RAMList is identification.

Component Changes

Vendors may change components; use different ICs from time to time. A listed module could use different components from what is shown on RAMList.

If this is the case, please contact me for additions and/or changes.

Original Research

Content added with the source being "CrazyblocksTechnologies Computer Labs", "CTCL", etc. is classified as original research. I strive to show as much information as possible while being accurate. If more information is needed, such as photo proof, please contact me. This is also the case with "Kris", who is an online friend, usually I have pictures of the described module/component when adding such entries.
