About[]

Parity determines whether a random access memory unit stores a parity bit for error detection purposes. Non-parity RAM does not include a parity bit, and parity RAM does. Parity RAM requires one additional bit to be stored with each byte of information, requiring memory modules to store 9, rather than 8, bits for every byte.

Non-parity[]

NON-Error Correction Code (ECC)/Non-parity — Most desktop and laptop computers take NON-ECC or Non-parity memory. [1]

Parity[]

Error Correction Code (ECC)/Parity — ECC or parity modules look for errors in data and are most often found in servers and other mission-critical applications used by large networks and businesses. [2]
