1) You made a claim, you have failed to adhere to the burden of proof, thus said claim can be discarded.
2)RAM includes a Serial Presence Detect chip which has an ID tag so that it can communicate with the BIOS to set the appropriate defined memory timings and frequency.
1) What I said was that overclocking can damage VRAM, yet you are focused and obsessed to make a point based on the generalization of AMD APUs North-bridge limitations, which has nothing to do with the point on hand I was discussing. But ironically I'm gonna put perhaps the gratest proof of all, for you. For example the PS4. In the case of the PS4 system is an AMD APU design, and yet it has been built with a dedicated video memory(GDDDR5), and in reversal it shares the VRAM Pool with the system memory. And before you rant about PS4 not being an APU, here read a little more. Perhaps now you're gonna say I didn't understand you or that im not interpreting correctly, and for that my friend mental hospitals do exist.
2) That is not what I talked about. And yes RAM has NAND. Read here. Also you can read more here. For a computer to be able start and boot properly a ram stick needs to have a SPD module. Basically what this module do is communicating the BIOS the safest timing and frequency under the proper DDR standard and start the PC. This has been like this for ages, and with it requiring manual tweaking in the BIOS for high performance sticks for extra performance if you need it. This changed a bit with the XMP profiles by Intel. With XMP the BIOS can access additional timings and frequencies stored in a 2 pre-arranged profiles within the SPD modules, so the bios can auto adjust these settings without further tweaking just by choosing which. For this to work, the SPD module need to have such data, if not, it will run in standard mode without any auto-tweak. If the extra data in these profiles were to be used as the default SPD info, RAM compatibility will be broken creating a huge problem between motherboard makers and ram manufacturers.
About the PS5
Mark Cerny said he was saving more details for the teardown of the system. Probably if any surprise, it will announced at that moment. Any chance you guys see the launch date being pushed back a few months(4-6) for whatever reason?User was moderated for this post. - Pemalite. Last edited by Pemalite - on 05 April 2020
