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

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

Last month we jumped on an opportunity presented to us to use our SSD Notebook Power Test system to observe battery life with a new product from Patriot. Patriot released a new product called Memory for Ultrabook. The name is exactly what it is, but we would of preferred something cool like Battery Saver SODIMM or something a little less…err, well whatever the hell Memory for Ultrabook is.

Despite the funky product name, Patriot’s 1.35v Memory for Ultrabook RAM delivered and in a big way. In our initial testing, we observed a 17 minute increase to battery life just by replacing our OEM Samsung 4GB SODIMM with a Patriot Memory for Ultrabook 8GB SODIMM. The Patriot model we used ran at the same 1600MHz speed as our original OEM Samsung 1.5v stick so we don’t lose performance in any way.

When we finished the article only one question remained in my mind, what happens when you replace two memory sticks with one and what happens to battery performance when you run four sticks?

So, today we are back and with four Patriot Memory for Ultrabook sticks running at 1600MHz. We’re going to test with one, two and finally four sticks to see how physical density affects battery performance. Let’s take a look at Patriot’s Memory for Ultrabook specs, see the product and go over the benchmark configuration before the test results.
