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?

Packaging

The memory sticks in a Patriot blister pack with one stick per pack. The specs are listed on the front; Patriot puts a sticker on the package that shows the density and memory speed.

Some general information about the ultra low memory is on the back of the package and the product SKU is on the bottom.

On the outside the Memory for Ultrabook looks like any other DDR3 SODIMM stick. The label on the package lets us know this is a 1.35V part, but other than the label, it looks like any other notebook memory stick.

There are 16 Micron DRAM chips, eight on each side.

Today we're using four sticks to test battery life with 4, 2 and finally 1 stick in our Lenovo W530 notebook.
