DIMM stands for Dual In-line Memory Module and they are the long slots usually arranged in groups of 2, 3 or 4 on either side of your CPU and they are there to hold your memory (RAM) blocks.
In respect to this, what is the difference between a SIMM and a DIMM?
The main physical difference between SIMMs and DIMMs is that DIMMs have different signal pins on each side of the module, resulting in two rows of electrical contacts. That is why they are called dual inline memory modules, and why with only 1" of additional length, they have many more pins than a SIMM.
What is DIMM memory?
A DIMM (dual in-line memory module) is a double SIMM (single in-line memory module). Like a SIMM, a DIMM is a module that contains one or several random access memory (RAM) chips on a small circuit board with pins that connect it to the computer motherboard.
What is the use of SIMM?
A SIMM, or single in-line memory module, is a type of memory module containing random-access memory used in computers from the early 1980s to the late 1990s.
