Patriot Memory for Ultrabook - Scaling SODIMM RAM Density vs. Battery Life - Specifications, Pricing and Availability

Patriot Memory for Ultrabook - Scaling SODIMM RAM Density vs. Battery Life

Last month we reviewed Patriot's low voltage SODIMM 'Memory for Ultrabook' RAM and found it increased notebook battery life over standard 1.5v SODIMM memory. We're back now to answer the question we left with last month - what happens to battery performance when I use more than one stick of memory?

Patriot has four SKUs in the new Memory for Ultrabook product line. These differ by density, 4GB and 8GB, and speed, 1333MHz and 1600MHz. Today we're looking at the largest and fastest model, 8GB running at 1600MHz. All four of these products use the new low voltage power scheme, 1.35 volts.

 

At the time of writing only two companies offer 1600MHz SODIMM products at Newegg, Patriot and Mushkin. Prior to writing this editorial I went back to check for changes in Patriot's pricing. The model we're testing today, 8GB 1600MHz at 1.35v is still listed at $44.99. Patriot doesn't offer bundle packs, just single stick SODIMM blister packs.

 

Patriot backs Memory for Ultrabook with a limited lifetime warranty, which is nice. There aren't any accessories, but we're talking about RAM, you don't really need any.
