Lenovo G50-45 RAM speed limited to 800Mhz

2017-05-01, 10:37 AM

Good morning everyone,

My laptop has 8GB of RAM memory, with a declared speed of 1600Mhz. The problem is that if I go to the task manager, the effective ram speed is 800Mhz. Can someone help me solving this problem?

Thank you in advance.

Solved! See the solution

Your I/O bus clock is 800 MHZ.

Your data rate is 1600 mt/s (megatransfer per second).

Your peak transfer rate is 12800 MB/s.

It takes 2 cycles to read the rising and falling edge of memory.

1600/2=800. 

 

Because the hertz is a measure of cycles per second, and no signal cycles more often than every other transfer, describing the transfer rate in units of MHz is technically incorrect, although very common.

PC3-12800 1600mhz
