* Note: This system uses the older 5105 chip set and therefore does not support a wide variety of applications that use a bi-directional mode. There is no work around and eaccording to Acer applications will either work or they won't.

Memory

The system comes standard with 4MB of memory on-board and four empty 72-pin SIMM sockets. The on-board memory is the same as having 4MB of memory in Bank 0, so if the 4MBs of onboard memory is enabled DO NOT put any SIMMs in Bank 0. The board accepts 4-/16-MB Simms, recommend 72 Pin, 70ns, Parity, Fast Page Mode SIMMS with gold tips upto a maximum of 64MB . NOTE: The V10 shipped with parity SIMMs, but you can use non-parity as long as they are all non-parity.


Cache

The V10 is upgradable to 64KB, 128KB, or 256KB Cache.
