Product name:
Product name is a brand's identification of a product, often a model name, but not totally unique as it can include some product variants. Product name is a key part of the Icecat product title on a product data-sheet.
Product code :
The brand's unique identifier for a product. Multiple product codes can be mapped to one mother product data-sheet if the specifications are identical. We map away wrong codes or sometimes logistic variants.
Category :
The motherboard or mainboard is the component that connects all the different parts of your computer. Often it has some integrated components like a sound card, enabling your computer to play sound, or a network card, to connect your computer to the network. The standard form factor (size) for motherboards is ATX, you need at least a midi-tower to fit one of those in. Micro-ATX motherboards are often more complete and have more onboard devices, like a video board and fit in smaller cases, but are generally less expandable.
Data-sheet quality: created/standardized by Icecat
The quality of the product data-sheet can be on several levels:

Supported memory types*
Types of memory which can be used with the product.
Memory slots type*
A memory slot, also known as a memory socket or RAM slot, is what allows computer memory (RAM) to be inserted into the computer. Depending on the motherboard, there will usually be 2 to 4 memory slots (sometimes more on high-end motherboards). The most common types of RAM are SDRAM and DDR for desktop computers and SODIMM for laptop computers, each having various types and speeds.
Number of memory slots
Supported memory clock speeds*
Memory clock speed is the time it takes for a computer to complete basic operations. It refers to the computer's processing speed and is measured in hertz. It is however not such a reliable measure of a computer's speed as it doesn't take into account other factors like RAM and cache size.
266, 333, 400 MHz
Maximum internal memory
