lx uses ev56 cpu
sx uses pca56 cpu
rx uses ev56 or pca56 (can't remember) with faster clock

1. Difference between 21164 SX / LX ?

Since I think the memory of my Alpha 21164 seems to be broken
(it crashes from time to time) I want to buy new memory. As
I contacted my hardware dealer he said for which Alpha the
memory should be: A 21164 SX or LX?
And that's the problem: How can I determine what version my
Alpha is? The manual for the motherboard says nothing about it.

What I surely know is the following:

* AlphaPC164
* CPU Alpha 21164 500 MHz
* All SIMMs must be 36-bit and have 70ns or faster access time
* All SIMMs must be of equal size

I think it's a Alpha 21164 SX but I'm not sure about it.

I'm grateful for every hint :-)
