RAM speed fluctuating big time. Is this normal?
#1
I've tested both slots and different sticks and both show the same result in HWINFO64, that the RAM is going back and forth/fluctuating between 1064Mhz and 665Mhz. CPU-Z also shows latency changing respectively between 15-15-15-35 and 10-10-10-28. Is this at all normal? The notebook is Dell Latitude 7460.

Thanks for any answers. Just received this notebook secondhand and it's perfect other than this. I don't want to cause any issue with the seller if this isn't something to worry about in regards to a hardware problem.

Any ideas? Thanks much!

It's normal also for memory to change clock/timings. Reduced rates are due to power management - to save power when there's no need for high performance.

Yes, but a jump like 1064Mhz to 665Mhz and latency changing is not normal.

Solved, anyways, needed to reset BIOS to factory settings and now completely stable with only the minor 1-2Mhz fluctuations.
