hoping I have at least ONE stick of PC133@256mb here, in this "mystery
group" of six sticks RAM. but not at all sure it's even PC ram, anyway,
or if it's pc100, pc133, how many mb's each, or what???

would some kind soul please take a look at this tiny (yet well
illustrated) site to see if I have the stick I need?

ps-goggle searches were no help - genuinely useful specifics re ram
identification seem impossible to find...

thanks much :-)

It's all 168-pin RAM, either PC100 or PC133, and it looks like a mix
between 64 and 128 MB each.

Hint: the "-10" suffix in the DRAM's part number indicates its speed.
That should tell you what you need to know.

Otherwise, here are various datasheets and other info:

Hyundai HY57V658020TC-10 and HY57V658020BTC-10S

Samsung chip part number KM48S2020CT-G10
module part number KMM366S403CTL-G0

No, they're all PC-100. The top two Hyundai sticks are 64MB, and the
rest are 32MB.

I should probably have said that all modules are at best only PC100.
Faultless performance could only be guaranteed at PC66 specs.

I was going to say, you would not have found any -10 chips in my
PC100-systems... 8)
