Motherboard>Memory - wrong Value?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I am new here, please excuse my bad english!

 

I use "AIDA64 Extreme" (Version 4.30.2900/25.03.2014)  and I think, that the values

I got after type in "Motherboard>Memory" are not correct.

 

Please read my attached Word-File with the included comments.

 

Sincerely yours, thanks for your answer

The values are reported by the standard Windows API call GlobalMemoryStatusEx.  You may debate those values or question their integrity, but those are the values Windows reports to other software.

I don't know GlobalMemoryStatusEx returns but it seems thus at the moment for all 3 values (total, used, free)

 

Physical memory = physical memory (go figure :rolleyes:)

Swap space = Physical memory + Paging file

Virtual memory = Physical memory + Swap space

 

Virtual memory seems to actually count physical memory twice based on above assumptions.

 

Is there any way to create a memory status dump like the sensor dump and raid dump in aida64?

No, and it's not necessary.  The sensor dumps are there because AIDA64 supports over 400 different sensor devices, via a dozen of access methods.  While memory status detection is done in a single way, without any quirks or different code paths.
