  2. Each mobo is designed for specific type of memory. You mix, computer sticks.

    They each require a different design of motherboard socket. (They have
    different number of pins.) A motherboard is designed to use one or the
    other, not both.

    Memory speeds is not the same and there must be two control logic for
    two tape of memory. This is to expensive.

    Not all in price it is also in speed of motherboard because there must
    bee two control logif for diferent types of memory and all signals
    must havae diferent formats.

    When your motherboard supports both SDRAM and DDR RAM you have the
    option to use one OR the other because of the architecture of the board.
    An analogy would be that you cannot walk through 2 doors at the same
    time, same with the motherboard. Data cannot travel through two
    distinctly different paths.
