COMPUTER MEMORY ISN‘T the most exciting of product these days, as in broad terms – and the memory manufacturers wouldn’t agree with us of course – it’s much of a muchness. In saying that, Adata has announced two different DDR3L SO-DIMM’s which should prove popular not only in gaming notebooks, but also in mini-ITX boards that only accept SO-DIMMs.
For those of you not familiar with DDR3L memory, the main difference between it and DDR3 memory is that the L stands for low Voltage and in the case of the new SO-DIMMs from Adata, the operating Voltage is between 1.25 and 1.35V. The SO-DIMM’s are part of Adata’s XPG gaming series of memory modules and so they’re fitted with heat spreaders.
Adata is offering the SO-DIMMs in capacities of 2 or 4GB with a clock speed of 1600MHz and a latency of 9-9-9-24. Kits of two modules will be on sale and should be ideal for next year’s Sandy Bridge mini-ITX boards, such as the Asus P8H67-I Deluxe or potentially with some Sandy Bridge gaming notebooks or whatever AMD has up its sleeve, including of course any current AMD based mini-ITX board that accepts DDR3 SO-DIMMs.S|A
