Wow, interesting. I always assumed it was the number of modules. I stand corrected. Let me amend my suggestion. Let me suggest that Speccy always double the RAM speed. That would bring it more in line with the RAM speeds seen on RAM specifications, motherboard specifications, and the like. For example... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813188115 - On this motherboard specification page, under "Memory Standard", the possible memory speeds are all doubled. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145347 - On this RAM specification page, under Speed, the max memory speed is doubled.
Often when talking about comptuer specs, we might describe RAM speed as "16GB DDR3-1333". However when you use Speccy to view the same RAM installed in a computer, it might look like this... As you can see, it only says the RAM is "16.0GB DDR3 @ 666MHz". Why is this so much slower than 1333? Well, there are 2 sticks of RAM installed, and Speccy is not multiplying 666 x 2 = 1333. So! I can think of two ways you could optimize how Speccy displays RAM. Method 1: Put each stick of RAM on its own line. 8.0GB DDR3 @ 666MHz (9-9-9-24) 8.0GB DDR3 @ 666MHz (9-9-9-24) Method 2: Multiply the RAM speed by the number of sticks. 16.0GB DDR3 @ 1333MHz (9-9-9-24)Leaving the user to guess the number of sticks of RAM installed in order to figure out the real RAM speed is not ideal. We should make it as clear as possible for the user.
I bought this motherboard in 2012, back when the motherboard and socket were still pretty new. I was hoping Speccy would get updated and the bug would get fixed. It didn't though so I'd like to bring the bug to your attention. : ) EVGA X79 SLI 132-SE-E775-KR LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813188115 Currently Speccy displays this... ETI 132-SE-E775 (SOCKET 0) Maybe the correct thing to display in Speccy would be... EVGA X79 SLI 132-SE-E775-KR (LGA 2011)Thanks for looking into this.
