Bring Empowered Multitasking to Your PC Using PC3-10600 DDR3 1333 MHz Memory Modules
Being able to work on a PowerPoint, watch a movie, all while browsing the internet and talking with your family is what computers were made for. Your computers memory plays a large role in ensuring your multitasking goes smoothly even under strenuous workloads. With lightning-fast unbuffered PC3-10600 DDR3 memory, you can accomplish all these tasks and more from the comfort of your laptop or desktop PC.How can you find the right memory for your system?
There is a huge range of memory available on the market today. Getting the right one for your system is key to having strong multitasking performance. There are a few key things you should look out for when shopping for yours:
- Performance: The speed at which your memory transfers data and enables your processor to access it. This is a combination of the PC3-10600 designation and the listed MHz rating. A PC3-10600 1333 MHz stick of RAM is capable of 10600 mega-transfers per second and operates at a clock speed of 1333 MHz, or 1.3 GHz. Youll want to find the highest listed MHz your system is compatible with.
- Storage Capacity: How much active information the RAM can store. Sometimes listed in gigabytes (GB DDR3) or megabytes (MB DDR3), this will determine how many programs your system can run at the same time.
- System Compatibility: Compatibility will largely be determined by your systems motherboard and its available memory slots and pin count. A 204-pin SODIMM slot, for example, is a DDR3 compatible memory slot commonly found on laptops and compact servers.
What is SODIMM?
Short for small outline dual in-line memory module, SODIMM is an industry standard memory slot. It is designed to be shorter for use in compact form factors. This includes laptops, printers, routers, compact servers, and more. SODIMM slots operate at the same speed and capacity as full-size DIMM slots. They also have similar power requirements. Modules that are designed to fit inside these slots will usually be taller to compensate for their shorter size.What is DDR3 RAM?
Double Data Rate Type 3 Synchronous Dynamic Random-Access Memory (DDR3 SDRAM) is a type of memory designed to have a high bandwidth for data transfer. It is the successor to the DDR2 standard and comes with a number of performance features to enable smooth computing. Coming in a wide range of speeds and capacities, DDR3 memory can be found in a variety of form factors to fit almost any system.Will this memory work with your system?
A combination of your motherboards available memory slots and the specifications of your processor will determine whether or not a memory module will work with your system. The pin count and slot on the RAM you are looking at will need to match the pin count and slot type on your motherboard. Your processor will sometimes have additional limits on clock speed.
