What is max RAM for Intel 82820 AGPset?

Yes, this is an old computer.

It's a Dell, and they say that 512MB is the max you can have. Well, that's
what I have and quite frankly it's just not enough. I know that sometimes
what a manufacturer says is the limit is not really the technical limit.

I found some info here:
http://www.yqcomputer.com/

This website states " Intel 820 chipset-based personal computers incorporate
the latest high performance RDRAM memory technology. Two RIMM sockets are
available to support 512 MB of total system memory and up to 1 GB of total
system memory as 256 Mbit RDRAM technology becomes available."

So what I'm wondering is this - Can each RIMM socket support 1GB or is 512MB
the most per socket? The way this is written is a little unclear.

Thank you!

The spec you quoted claims 512MB maximum per socket.

Times two sockets = 1GBmax system memory...

that's
incorporate
total
512MB

Not exactly. The spec claimes "Two RIMM sockets are available to support 512
MB of total system memory and up to 1 GB of total system memory as 256 Mbit
RDRAM technology becomes available."

This could easily be interpreted to mean that each socket can support 1 GB
once 256 Mbit RDRAM technology is available. Does anyone have another source
of information to verify whether 512 or 1GB is the max per socket?

Thanks.
