I chose the 2x 16GB ram with my DIY edition.
I only see basic specs for this ram.
What is the model of ram so I can find more specs?
Is this ram dual or single rank? In some other threads people have discussed the benefits of dual rank ram.
A 2x 16GB set of dual rank ram is about the same price as the included ram in my framework diy kit so I’d like to figure out if I made the right choice before it ships.
These are the compatitble RAM kits
Given that you chose a 32GB kit, I think it’s likely that the kit will be dual rank
Am checking each of the kits now but the Kingston at least I’ve confirmed is dual rank and I know of at least one crucial Kit that is dual rank even tho it is not on that list
Samsung will be dual rank as well and Micron owns crucial so those kits will be the same
Didn’t quickly find spec sheets on the SK Hynix kits so won’t speak to them but odds are good it’ll be dual rank
I was also very curious about this. Hoping for dual rank. I went with the 16GB kit. Not much for specs on Crucial’s or Framework’s site other than the basic kit specs.
I have seen the list and it is a bit helpful. Based on pricing it does seem like Framework has the more expensive dual rank memory which is nice. I considered buying some memory off Amazon last night but I think I’m just going to go with what Framework has since its tested. Hopefully XMP support is available sometime in the future for even faster speeds.
It won’t-XMP is considered overclocking and these CPUs are locked SKUs, there will be no XMP support forthcoming
The official Framework list doesn’t the RAM ranked by power efficiency. Has the community tested these RAM combinations and determined a best brand/combination?
That’s because the efficiency difference should be negligible
Smaller capacity will use less power but since they all run at the same timing and clocks, the difference between the same capacity should be minimal
was there a reason why the speed chosen was the one they went with? Has anyone tried crucial ballistix in this laptop?
@Robert_Pierce I did see a video on youtube where someone attempted to use Crucial Ballistix ram and since XMP is not supported, the ram reverted back to like 2600MT instead of 3200MT
Thank you for this. I appreciate it was there a reason why XMP is not supported and is that changeable with a firmware or bios update?
The motherboard doesn’t support XMP. I believe that it was related to cost.
Unless Intel changes their mind and releases a microcode update, there is nothing Framework can do except release a new board using one of Intel’s HK processors that support overclocking
