I'm confused on the low vs. high density RAM.

If it has chips on both sides is that low density?

If it has chips on one side is that high density?

Why are they even different?


thanks

That's good information but it does not tell me what the difference between high and low density.

But are some 64mb sticks not high density? what about 256mb?

I still don't understand.....

Ok...

I understand the double vs. single sided

I understand that with high density each individual chip on the memory module holds more mb.

I understand the high density to be of higher quality and faster (in most cases)

I understand that some motherboards will only accept low density and that if you put high density RAM one of those MB's it will only show 1/2 the amount of RAM installed.

What I don't know or understand is How do you tell the diffrence between the two? If you have a high density and low density RAM module next to each other, how do you know that one is high and the other is low?? I have read that in the chip configuration (16x16 or 32x8) has something to do with it. Can someone please explain how to tell which it is?
