What RAM type you have in Linux

To check what RAM memory type yo have installed (and also see other useful information about your system), do a
#dmidecode
Depending on the version of dmidecode you have installed and the hardware configuration you have, each hardware device will have a certain type number assigned t it. On my machine, the RAM has type 6. So to see what RAM type and speed you have, do a
#dmidecode --type 6
and the output will be something like
# dmidecode 2.9
SMBIOS 2.3 present.

Handle 0×0008, DMI type 6, 12 bytes
