is my ram running at its full speed?

I bought a gaming laptop with 8gb (2x4gb) of 1600mhz ram. I dl'ed cpu-z to take a look and it says NB, or DRAM, frequency is 798.1. I assume that's reading off of one ram stick? I am not sure. The channel is Dual.

  1. Best answer
    It's running at full speed. It always shows the frequency at half.
  2. Misnomer - it read the true freq, since this is DDR (DOUBLE data rate) you take true freq times 2 = Effective, or 798.1 x 2 = 1596.2 (so +/- 1600)
