Patriot Memory Bringing Out Ultrabook Memory

By - Source: Patriot Memory Email | B 10 comments

Patriot Memory is shipping Ultrabook memory modules later this month.

On Wednesday, Patriot Memory introduced its new Memory For Ultrabook SODIMM modules, providing customers with a "no hassle option" to manually upgrade their Ultrabook-class laptop. These modules, scheduled to hit the market later this month, will be compatible with Intel's 3rd-generation Core processors and run at just 1.35 volts.

Patriot said these new Ultrabook-focused 204-Pin dual in-line memory modules are built from a locked high quality build of materials and hand tested offering consumers rock-solid plug and play performance for the most demanding mobile applications. They will be available in 4 GB and 8 GB modules and 1333 MHz and 1600 MHz frequencies.

So far actual pricing and availability is unknown, but the modules will be backed by a limited lifetime warranty and customer support when they arrive late this month.

    So Patriot expects people foolish enough to buy an Ultrabook, to spend more money on RAM? Really? Good luck with that theory nd marketing concept.

    I thought the Memory in most ultrabooks were soldered in?

    "hand-tested"? lol.

    A truly manual test would involve breadboards and DIP switches with horrendous human error factor. Memtest86 or ASIC/FPGA-driven testbeds count as heavily automated in my book even if the DIMM swapping itself is "entirely" manual.

    This was my understanding also, I am not sure if this will be a very lucrative market for Patriot..

    Some have one memory module soldered in place along side a traditional memory slot that can be used for upgrades.

    Yea my Sony Vaio T ultrabook has one ram dimm soldered in and one open. I just added 4 gb in for a total of 8.

    They will probably charge a premium for "ultrabook" memory which is ludicrous because normal ones work fine

    I would like to start seeing this voltage RAM in a desktop form factor too. Having 8 RAM chips at 1.5 volts would certainly be several watts of savings at 1.35 volts.

    Can we please stop calling it "lifetime" or "limited lifetime" and just list the years already? That marketing gimmick has really started to get on my nerves in the past couple of years.

    You can get some 1.35 volt stuff for desktops

    Samsung 30 nm Green - Hard to get some places
    G-skill ECO - Sometimes hard to get
    Corsair Vengeance low profile(Has to be white for 1.35 volt operation) Sold at most online stores.

    Many desktop kits will also under volt to 1.35 if you are not pushing it. so 1333 @ 9-9-9-24. I have some old Corsair stuff that worked fine on 1.35

    Lifetime should mean what it sounds like. My lifetime. Or as you said, put the years. Lifetime warranty(product lifetime is 10 years). Governments, do something useful and pass some laws already.
