Hmmmm, if you do: "sudo dmidecode", the BIOS returns some info about the
H/W, which includes some details about the memory slots. I get a section
like this for every slot :
DMI type 6, 12 bytes.
Memory Module Information
Socket Designation: A0
Bank Connections: 0 1
Current Speed: 10 ns
Installed Size: 256 MB (Double-bank Connection)
Enabled Size: 256 MB (Double-bank Connection)
Error Status: OK
"Speed" is reported as 10ns. My RAM modules are PC2100, clocked at
266MHz (the rated speed I believe).
