So, I am reading a couple similar posts lately where Ryzen APUs and ECC memory turn up in parts lists. I did a test of that combination in May 2018 and as far as I can say, it does not work. The APU would accept the memory and use it but the ECC part won’t do anything. If it was the board or the APU… I don’t know and it didn’t matter to me back then.
I have read “it should work”, “why not?” and “doesn’t say otherwise” a million times. But as much as I would like that to be the case, it is probably of more use to people, for us to find out if it is actually true.
So, my thesis is this:
RYZEN APUs can’t utilize the error correction feature in ECC memory.
Now I need your help to prove me wrong.
Because so far I have not seen actual confirmation that it does work.
Here is what I did back then:
So if you are a tinkerer and have the parts around…
