    Operating at speeds of 1600 MHz and 1866 MHz, the new Vengeance laptop memory upgrade kits are an ideal solution for notebooks equipped with a 2nd Generation Intel Core i5 or Core i7 processor. Vengeance laptop memory is designed to be plug-and-play, with no BIOS adjustments needed to instantly take advantage of the faster memory speed.

    "As more complex applications and games are available in the market, many laptop users are looking for an easy way to improve their system performance in order to have the best experience." said Thi La, Vice President of Memory Products at Corsair.

    That's not the point. I'm thinking about how it looks on the store shelf, and what people at the store will see. After doing so many reviews, it's become very obvious to me that packaging is very very important. A TONNE of engineering goes into cardboard boxes.

    Black PCB, sticker matching the DIMM connector...fantastic esthetics for the store shelf.

    You are a minority. Many will look at the pics of the product on sites for online retailers, or in person @ their favorite local retailer.

    It's not the same with SODIMM's. they have been using the same bubble pack for 6 years so changing the cardboard insert is a major R&D effort:wtf:

    I'm not extremely knowledgeable on how a laptop determines at what speed the ram should work, but how do these sticks get your computer to use them at optimal settings?

    ive always just bought OEM memory for laptops... you cant see the stuff and usually theres no bios options for setting memory timings etc making aftermarket fancy stuff pointless IMO

    Laptops and desktops are no different. Both use a small "SPD ROM" that contains the info needed for timings, speed, and voltages, right on the DIMMs. Most offer settings that are "JEDEC" approved, meaning the consortium of ram makers and sellers have agreed to these settings as being the standard, to ensure full compatibility.

    What's new with these sticks, seemingly, in the models @ 1600 MHz and 1866 MHz, is the use of the new JEDEC settings(meaning no need for BIOS options to set things up) for these speeds. Very few laptop modules on the market offer JEDEC-approved SPD settings over 1333 MHz(which is what you've dealt with before).

    I just tighten and flash the timings on one stick in SPDTool unless I have spare sticks, always safe to have one lying around just in case you mess up and need something to boot up and reflash.

    Not just i5/i7...likely good for APUs too. Heard more than one remark about them needing faster RAM than what ships stock in the laptops.

    You have to remember that power is an issue in a notebook scenario,normally you wont have vdimm control.

    I don't see it, my desktop Vengeance kits are set to 1600MHz 9-9-9-24 1.5v by default, it seems the same? The only difference is that 1866MHz runs 10-10-10-27 as opposed to the desktop 9-10-9-27, for a notebook those are pretty good values.

    Actually it is not so true. 1-st Gen I-7 use 1333Mhz speed while Corsair Vengeance (at least first which came) don't have support for 1333Mhz JEDEC. Only for 1066Mhz. So I-7 will not have any advantage... Unless someone reflash it;)
