I cold be wrong but I think platform specific memory is just a marketing gimmick. Technically, if any DDR3 memory uses JEDEC standards it should work in an DDR3 slot no matter what. (In the real world sometimes there are odd compatibility problems where a certain type of memory chip won't work in a certain motherboard and much of the RAM on the market goes higher than the JEDEC standard 1.5 volts.)

Correct me if I' wrong, but don't Llano and Zambezi both support 1866 memory? If that's the case, then where are the G2 sticks at the faster speed?

What makes memory different when its targeted at certain platforms?

I'm sure someone will correct me if I am wrong. It means that it has been tested with said platform and seems to work as intended. There is nothing stopping you from running it on Intel's platform, just be sure to understand that it may not work as intended.

What i think is that the memory is optimized more for the AMD 900-series platform than other platforms.

So, does this mean I couldn’t use these modules on an Intel system? Technically I could just change the Voltage and timings to be compatible to that of an Intel CPU right? Is this just a marketing gimmick, or is it that these modules have been solely tested to perform the advertised speed on AMD CPU’s? I’m just confused…Lol.
