If its broke and it doesn't turn on you probably wanna post in here.

Linx 10V64 Ram speed question

Postby Cliff » January 5th, 2017, 2:06 am

Please could you tell me if the 4GB of DDR3 in a Linx 10V64 is rated for 1600MHz ?
The ram in the 10V64 tablet runs at a much slower 1066MHz by default and I have not observed it changing to any other speed in use.

Using BIOS Frequency A selection I believe (correct me if I'm wrong) will run it at 1600MHz according to something similar shown for a Chuwi tablet, but if too high a ram speed it could freeze it permanently requiring a hardware bios flash to fix and I'm unwilling to risk a brand new tablet.

I deleted my previous unanswered post and remade it here with a few minor changes after finding this is the sub-forum for my tablet and question.

Thanks for any advice and information on the ram or ram settings that you can give.

Hi,

I'm not sure why it clocked down but my 1010 has been too. I'm guessing like you said that going any higher is causing stability issues with the tablet but I've not got the stones to find out :D .

Cheers,

I've put in a request at linxsupport@exertis.co.uk as this forum is mainly for help from other users. I've had an answer but no luck yet, there were a couple of attachments including specifications but nothing in them listing the ram speed so linxsupport is still trying to find that out. I'm glad there's someone that will go to that trouble.

Someone here in the general forum posted pictures of the inside of a Linx Vision with what seems to be Hynix 1600Mhz 11-11-11-11 ram and a Linx 10 with 1600Mhz Samsung ram. At least that's hopeful but I'd be happier if they were the same type of ram which would increase the probability for mine.

If someone here in the forum opened a 10v64 tablet I'm guessing it was closed again so I'm not holding my breath while waiting for an answer. I don't expect anyone to open one without a compelling reason like having to fix it. Luckily I'm very patient. I wonder if I just pop into the bios and.... no must wait must wait. Think I'll check my emails.

Your very lucky, just standard run of the mill questions I asked, they ignored me.
Besides, does memory speed matter. It does what its ment to, so I wouldn't worry. My main gaming rig is 13 years old and runs 800MHz DDR, :). Still keeps up with the latest games.

My computer has 800Mhz DDR2 too. Apart from a new videocard and bigger monitor it's the same computer I built back then. I don't remember exactly how old but probably about the same as yours.

For typical games normally installed like Crysis on low to medium settings I agree it would be fine, I could do with a little more oomph from the tablet because I run GTAV on it. I was impressed that it ran once I bought a good Type U3 128GB MicroSD to hold it, but even a tiny improvement makes a difference. Increasing the ram speed to it's default from underclocked typically doesn't increase the temperature much in comparison to the 19% improvement in application speed benchmarked by someone doing it with a different but similarly ram-underclocked tablet. The improvement is likely helped by the Intel GPU using the same ram, it's like an upgrade for the graphics card.

UPDATE:
Here's a little snippet that I discovered using the msdos command WMIC MEMORYCHIP get
The tablet contains Hynix ram which it says is running at 1.5v. I couldn't find any voltage controls or information in the bios to confirm this high value and CpuZ doesn't report the ram voltage but it might mean the ram has been underclocked to maintain battery life or temperature.

UPDATE for 12th February 2017:
I didn't ever get a reply from Linx support for my follow up request to know the ram speed and telling them the type which is very disappointing. I noticed it's rated as 1600Mhz ram on Ebuyer but they often make errors in specifications, sometimes different specifications in the same advert so I can't accept their listed ram speed as accurate, unfortunately.
