Registered Memory (Buffered)

Registered Memory (Buffered)

Registered memory (also called buffered memory) contains registers that hold the data for one clock cycle before it is moved on to the motherboard. Registered memory is slightly slower than unregistered/unbuffered memory, and more expensive as well, so it is usually found only in applications where the need for scalability and stability outweighs the need for speed and a low price. Registered memory should not be confused with ECC memory; although many server-grade memory modules are both ECC and registered, there are registered non-ECC modules and non-registered ECC modules.
