What size data path would you expect to find on a dual inline memory module?
A) 16 bits
B) 32 bits
C) 64 bits
D) 128 bits
E) 220, 221, whatever it takes.
The answer: C) 64 bits
The standard size data path for a DIMM is 64 bits. Since DDR/DDR2/DDR3 SDRAM uses DIMMs, when you calculate the total amount of throughput you use the 64 bit multiplier as part of the formula.
