Xp Only See 2.99Gb Of 4Gb Module
Posted 24 May 2012 - 05:22 AM
I've swapped my E8400/2x2GB DDR2 with a Sandy Bridge G620 (2.6GHz)/ASUS P8H61-M LX and a single module 4GB DDR3 RAM
When i was using my E8400 (with two 2GB DDR2 modules), XP reports a 3.2GB or RAM... but now with Sandy Bridge, i get only 2.99GB
does this extra 0.2GB seen on my previous machine has anything to do with dual channel?

i'm more curious about why there's a difference of 0.2GB when i had 2x2GB DDR2 modules compared to 1x4GB DDR3
I would rather guess that it's the private memory assigned to your graphic adapter, taken out the PC physical main memory, and flagged by Windows as non-reachable because reserved for private usage.
