LXer: Find out what RAM type you have in Linux

Published at LXer:

To check what RAM memory type yo have installed (and also see other useful information about your system), do a sudo dmidecode. Depending on the version of dmidecode you have installed and the hardware configuration you have, each hardware device will have a certain type number assigned t it. On my machine, the RAM has type 6. So to see what RAM type and speed you have, do a sudo dmidecode –type 6.
