Shalom esstee,

I know of no way other than to look at dmesg output and then open the machine and read the part numbers on the chips.

Re: How to find RAM memory type

Hi,

You could try lshw, if it's available. It provides a little more information including type.

Here's the output from my laptop:

SODIMM DDR Synchronous 142 MHz (7.0 ns)
physical id: 0
slot: DIMM #1
size: 512MB
width: 64 bits
clock: 142MHz (7.04225ns)

Hope this helps!
