The RAM in a server needs to be upgraded. The requirement
is to use memory that is capable of operating at 1200
MHz and can transfer data up to 10.7 GB/sec. Which

The RDRAM device is a general purpose high performance
memoryd evice suitable for use in a broadrange of
applications including computer memory, graphics,
video, and any other application where high bandwidth
and low latency are required.
The 256/288 Mb RDRAM devices are extremely highspeed
CMOS DRAMs organized as 16M words by 16 or 18 bits.
The use of Rambus Signaling Level (RSL) technology
permits 600MHz to 1200 MHz transfer rates while using
conventional system and board design technologies.
The 256/288 Mb RDRAM devices are offered in a CSP
horizontal package suitable for desktop as well as
lowprofile add-in card and mobile applications.

C. connecting the subsystem to the server while it
is powered up
D. powering off the RAID subsystem when the server
is turned on
Answer: A, C, D
