I just found some ancient RAM sticks and i was wondering what size they were. I was searching on google for a while but didnt find anything so I came here. I have 3 different sticks

The first one is made by toshiba and the label says
54-23623-JA
2MX32, 60 Z

2nd one is made by micron and says
MT16D232 M-6 X
9642AA1Qy.018
EDO

3rd is made by Mosel and says
XR-SIMM1M32/6
I can give you numbers off the actual chips if you need them
thanks

how old are they? the only numbers that stand to me are

#1: 32 as in 32MB

#2: 16 as in 16MB

#3: 32 as in 32MB

Usually the stickers will give you a better clue than that for sizes, but if they are truly old enough to only be those amounts then they might not say what size they are either.

Im pretty sure they were all made in 1996 and the labels dont give any info I can read, maybe someone who knows how to read old labels can tell me?

I agree with Gamerman on his evaluation of the modules. The first one may be 2x32Mbit. I forget the full formula for obtaining capacity using those numbers...

If you had an old board that supported these things it'd be cake!
