Anyway, a new piece of 512MB PC2700 CL2 DDR has come with VISIPRO brand name. At first I doubt that the memory will compatible to the system but it did work fine. I recorded some of benchmark tests before & after the memory plugged onto the laptop with SiSoftware Sandra Standard just want to know the numeral result difference. And finally below here is the result (Memory Bandwith Benchmark, Cache & Memory Benchmark & CPU Multimedia Benchmark):
Note that I’ve done the above test twice to make sure that the statistical result is more real. From the benchmark record, I can concluded that the additional amount of memory will increase the performance of multimedia application since the cache & memory space are also grown up. Moreover, the memory bandwidth seems to be falling several digits. AFAIK, the use of dual plate of memory may become the cause since it will take a delay to transport the packet from & to between memory & system.
The good thing is, the are no more disk-swapping process happened even on Fedora 7 as shown on picture above.
