BIOS Option Of The Week - Memory Hole At 15M-16M
11:40 AM MYT   |   Posted by: Dr. Adrian Wong

Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide, affectionately known as the BOG. From a meager beginning of a single page, it now covers over 440 BIOS options. As old BOG readers will know, we started offering two editions of the BOG since Revision 8.0 - a simplified edition and the complete edition.

Normally, the complete edition is only available to subscribers who help sponsor the development of the guide through a small fee. However, that changes today! From now on, we will post a BIOS option from the complete edition of the BIOS Optimization Guide every weekend.



This week, we will be taking a look at the Memory Hole At 15M-16M BIOS setting. Here’s an excerpt :
"Certain ISA cards require exclusive access to the 1 MB block of memory (from the 15th to the 16th megabyte) to work properly. This BIOS feature allows you to reserve that 1 MB block of memory for such cards to use.

If you enable this feature, 1 MB of memory (the 15th MB) will be reserved exclusively for the ISA card’s use. This effectively reduces the total amount of memory available to the operating system by..."

ED#204 : How Useful Is The Extra Memory In The ASUS ZenFone 2?
02:16 PM MYT   |   Posted by: Dr. Adrian Wong

One of the reasons why the ASUS ZenFone 2 was such a hit was the fact that it was the first smartphone to feature 4 GB of RAM. Practically all smartphones at the same price point came with just 2 GB of RAM. Even top-of-the-line models like the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge that cost more than twice as much came with just 3 GB of RAM.



There were detractors, of course, who insisted that the extra memory was just a waste of money. That’s why we decided to check out just how useful is the extra memory in the ASUS ZenFone 2 smartphone.
