This is the time of year in which you will see a number of new gaming laptops hitting the store shelves. Many of them will hit key price points by coming with less memory or a slower/smaller hard drive. But that's not such a bad thing for PC DIY enthusiasts because you can now call upon G.Skill to pack all those slots with their new G.Skill Ripjaws Low Voltage Plug and Play memory kits.
The new G.Skill DDR3L RAM is to be the new flagship of the existing Ripjaws laptop RAM series. This plug-n-play kit features a speed of 2133 MHz CL11, but maintains the same voltage as the rest of the series at 1.35V. It will first be available in an 8 GB (4 GB x 2) and 4 GB (2 Gb x 2) memory kits. While designed to pair with Intel Haswell based laptops it should work well with any laptop with no need for advanced BIOS tweaking. With many users opting for smaller and lighter notebooks these days, faster memory modules can also help increase integrated graphics performance, giving gaming performance a boost.
When we first tested Kingston's HyperX PnP SODIMMs, which clocked in at higher speeds, we found a substantial increase in performance for some games. And because the G.Skill Ripjawas are low voltage as well, they might also help you squeeze a few more minutes out of that battery overall. And again, you just plug them in and play.
If you need the best performance possible while maintaining your laptop battery life, then look no further than the G.Skill RipJaws SO-DIMM memory kits. You can find the 8 GB 2133 MHz 204 pin SO-DIMM kit available now for around $94.99 with a lifetime warranty. More details are in the press release below.
