Add the best in Registered, SO-DIMM and desktop RAM for your DDR3 laptop, desktop or server
Delivering quality DDR3 memory SDRAM module upgrades built by DRAM manufacturers allows PRO Memory Upgrade computer users to expand RAM with the ultimate balance of technology and price in their computer systems and platforms. Specs from 204-PIN DDR3 SO-DIMM, 240-PIN desktop to ECC Registered DDR3 SDRAM modules in DDR3-1066 PC3-8500 and DDR3-1333 PC3-10600.
Review how the newest DDR3 SDRAM RAM stacks up vs the older DDR2 memory
The primary benefit of DDR3 SDRAM memory is the ability to transfer twice the data rate of DDR2 memory (I/O at 8× the data rate of the memory cells it contains), thus enabling higher bus rates and higher peak rates than earlier RAM generations.
DDR3 SDRAM memory modules provide a reduction in power consumption of 30% vs DDR2 modules due to DDR3's 1.5 V supply voltage, compared to DDR2's 1.8 V or DDR's 2.5 V. The 1.5 V supply voltage works great with the 90 nanometer fabrication technology used in the original DDR3 component.
While the typical latencies for a JEDEC DDR2 modules device were 5-5-5-15, the standard latencies for the JEDEC DDR3 memory upgrade specs are 7-7-7-20 for PC3-8500 DDR3-1066 and 7-7-7-24 for PC3-10600 DDR3-1333.
Tier one computer OEMs such as Apple, Dell, Intel and Lenovo are migrating machines and motherboards over to the newest generation of memory. The 204-PIN DDR3 SODIMM and Unbuffered DIMM specs are both of Apple's newest lines the MacBook Pro laptop and the Mac Pro tower.
- The best DDR3 modules are made by DRAM manufacturers, such as Samsung, Hynix, Micron, and others. Computer makers purchase factory original memory modules built by these companies to install. Apple, Dell, HP, IBM, Sony, Sun and Toshiba, do not manufacturer DDR3 memory, they buy it. PRO Memory Upgrade delivers the same exact grade that these OEMs specify for their servers, laptops and other systems.
- Q: Can I use DDR3 memory in a DDR2 system? A: During the migration from DDR2 to DDR3 some motherboards did utilize both RAM types. This is rare now, the answer is NO.
