Patriot Memory for Ultrabook PC3-12800 8GB LoVo SODIMM Review - Specifications, Pricing and Availability

The big push in 2013 for mobile performance will be fought in battery life. Like every other market, if you want to get the best available you have to go to the aftermarket for premium components. The Patriot Memory for Ultrabooks will increase your notebook or ultrabook battery life, but just like everything premium, you have to pay a bit more.

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.

 

As we stated in the introduction, there are only two 8GB 1600MHz LoVo models listed at Newegg, one from Mushkin and the Patriot Memory for Ultrabook we're looking at today. With only two products available with these specs you'll need to pay a little more for the features.

 

Newegg lists the Patriot Memory for Ultrabook 8GB 1600MHz 1.35V stick for $44.99 at the time of writing. The lowest priced 8GB 1600MHz stick on Newegg costs $32, but it uses 1.5 volts and is from a brand I don't recognize.
