What is the meaning of the numbers after the "dot"

CT6464Z335.8T

CT6464Z335.16T

I have 1 stick of 512 in the wifes current PC and want to buy another for her newer one (1Gb total). Both boards use the same memory, but I don't know what the bolded numbers signify.

I believe the bolded 8T and 16T are part of the model number. Seems like crucial numbers the models this way. On crucials website they have Models labeled as Advanced 6t, Advanced 8t, etc.

For example:
Crucial Technology 512MB 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 333 (PC 2700) Unbuffered System Memory Model CT6464Z335.16T

i believe it to be the density of the chips.

16t would be low density, double sided. 8t would be standard density, single sided. they also have some 4t memory, that would be high density, single sided.

thats always been my understanding of it anyways. may be wrong.

That is correct... 16T chips have 8 chips on both sides of the RAM stick... 8T has either 8 chips on one side or 4 on 1 and 4 on the other side.. 4T chips has 4 on the same side of the stick..

Thanks for the replies. I asked because Crucial web site does not show the 8T/16T suffix, but Newegg does. I would assume 8T and 16T will work together?

That will work only if both modules are single-density or double-density. The number of chips does not declare that factor.. that is the design status of the internal lattice that makes up the storage area.
