    Hi everyone,

    On my TM2 2190SF Core I3 380UM, my memory speed is 667MHz!
    Is that also your case? Or have you 800MHz?
    My RAM is a 4G installed on slot 2 (and nothing on slot 1)
    Is that OK?

    Best regards,
    Manulain

    To dual channel the ram is always better I think, someone more knowledgable have to answer but, 2 busses is always better than a single bus.

    That is, same type of RAM in the setting 2G + 2G or 4G + 4G.
    So my suggestion, slam another RAM piece in there.


    Read this about he earlier model. Since the ram is the same it´s should still be the same deal.

    The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.

    Waouh! 1333MHz, and what is your WEI, mine is 5.2 for the RAM.
    I have 4G SAMSUNG PC3-10700 (667MHz), what i can see on CPU-Z

    Mine came with SAMSUNG DDR3 1333 memory (but running at 400 MHz) [800 MHz double-pumped]

    So it's running at DDR3 800 as advertised. Thus it's not using the RAM's full potential... far from it.

    This is not HP's fault though. Intel designed the ULV Core i5's to run memory at 800 MHz only.

    I get a mem WEI of 5.5

    Manu: you better open it up and see what it says on the memory sticker. I'm on a 2190 also.
