OCZ rilascia Memtest86 v1.00
Con il seguente comunicato
OCZ ha annunciato oggi il rilascio del programma OCZ Memtest86 v1.00.
OCZ Memtest86 v1.00
Built onto the core of newly released Memtest86+ v1.27 package, the OCZ
Memtest86 v1.0 package contains the following additional functionality:
* Timing adjustment support for nVidia nForce2, Intel i865/i875, Intel
i915/i925 chipsets, and the AMD Athlon64 on-die memory controller
* Full timing adjustment is available on the nForce2, i865/i875, and i915/i925
(DDR1 modules only) chipsets (tCAS, tRCD, trp, tRAS).
* Partial timing adjustment is available on the AMD Athlon64 and the i915/i925
chipset using DDR2 modules. All timings except CAS latency can be set.
* More AMD64 specific options for fine-tuning the memory controller also
known as “Alpha Tweaks.”
At this point we are not able to implement CAS adjustment on the Athlon64
as the memory controller can lose stability and lock-up if the CAS latency is
changed after initial boot-up. Likewise, the i915/i925 chipset memory controller
that handles DDR2 also exhibits a loss of stability when CAS latency is changed
after initial boot-up.
The timing adjustments are accessed through the main configuration menu
through selection “(9) Extra Options.” This will take you to another
menu which has three options: Modify Timings, Refresh Screen (what was originally
in position (9) of the main menu), and Cancel.
CAUTION: Modifying timings may cause your system to crash or lock-up if
your memory/mainboard is not able to handle the new timings that you set. Use
this feature at your own risk.
By selecting Modify Timings you are dropped into the timing modification
menu where you can either change all the timings at once, or select a specific
timing to change. When you select a specific timing to change you will be prompted
to enter a new value. The program will reject any value that is not a valid
entry for the chipset/memory controller and the type of memory that is currently
After entering the value(s) OCZ Memtest86 will reinitialize and begin testing
using the new timings/settings. The program will also calculate the new memory
bandwidth using the timings/settings just entered. There is an AMD64 extra option
mode. The extra option mode will let the user modify some of the more detailed
and specific parameters of the memory controller such as refresh rate, read-to-write
1.00 : – Initial release
* Athlon64 becomes unstable when CAS latency is changed. The option for
CL modification has been removed for the Athlon64 for the time being.
* On the i925 chipset system would crash after CAS latency changed. The
option to change CL has been removed for the i925 timing adjustment menu for
the time being.
* System may crash if the memory cannot run on the specific timing.
* On some systems, the timing disclaimer may take a long time to display,
please be patient when at this screen.
* Reprint screen function may be broken.
* The 1T/2T command rate only works with a CG revision or later Athlon64
