[Linux-PowerEdge] Dell PE640 with H740p Raid Controller (Ulrich, Andreas)

H740P is advertised as 8 GB:

Cache memory,8 GB DDR4 2133 Mhz cache

But show up as 4096 MB in our new R740:

PERC H740P Adapter (PCI Slot 4)


	RAID Controller in Slot 4 	4 	50.0.1-0639 	--NA-- 	4096 MB


What is wrong ?

Best Regards
Marcus
