Hello,

As about every Tritonian knows, finding good RAM for his/her baby is quite a nightmare : "16 or 32 MB, EDO or Fast Page compatible, access time 60ns or less, 11 bits addressing mode".

The latter, "11 bits addressing mode" is the most important specification the memory must follow. But many manufacturers/sellers don't speak about "addressing mode" and you find "1k", "2k", "4 chips", or other unknown terms.

So, I will give you "the" magic formula. This is not from me, but it is the resume of all I could grab in the forums and by reading some FAQ (this from Kingston is very explanative) :

11 bits addressing mode = 2k refresh

For 16 MB you absolutely need 8 chips, and for 32 MB 16 chips (double-sided, thus 2x8 chips).

I found such memory at 10$ piece at 2-3 shops (search  "32 MB EDO 2k" at http://www.pricewatch.com for the list and you'll find the Holy Grail)

Very good.
I’m moving this one to the “Classic Threads” section for permanent save keeping.
Cool
Thanks Xavier

Anyone know if the voltage matters? I'm seeing 5 volts, VS. 3.3 volts.

Also wondering what the final verdict on gold VS. tin contacts was...

Exactly Smile
Why bother with all the details when someone else is guaranteeing you the right type of Ram at an excellent price. He's also well known, and trusted.

Hi, does anyone know whether the ram "hp D4892A" works on Triton?
It's "32MB, 60ns, 72 pins, 17 chips(with one ECC), 2k refresh", but it seems to be 36X8 bits(I don't know if this means that it's not 11 bits addressing).
