RamWorks 2000

Max Ram: 8MB
Ram Type: DRAM Chips
Connection: Zorro II

RAM is added in the form of DRAM chips. The board contains 16 columns of DRAM chips. By default the RamWorks 2000 adds memory in one or more blocks depending on your memory (see below) configuration. Multiple blocks of memory are not desirable because when memory is allocated, it cannot be allocated across block boundaries. A utility called MergeMem was supplied with the card to force all the memory on the card to appear as one block.
