After last week's meeting I did have one thought: keeping a 'best of breed'
example board for each generation of DRAM might be useful. E.g. one good
board for SDRAM, DDR2, DDR3. Just pick a really good one and mark it as an
I realize it's all in git but out of sight is out of mind. My old favorite
would the first sis630 board or the intel/l440gx simply because they were
the very first ones and because of sdram.
To this day I think the work Stefan did on the getac and i945 is a great
read for memory training.
