    Lexar Media, a leading global provider of memory products for digital media, today announced high-density 4GB Crucial DDR3-1333MHz (PC3-10600) SODIMM notebook memory. These new 4GB SODIMM modules offer anyone seeking a desktop replacement option – including mobile consumers, enthusiasts, and workstation users – the enhanced computing performance they crave. Additionally, the notebook modules have been validated for compatibility with Intel's Core i7, i5, and i3 mobile processors.

    "The shift from DDR2 to DDR3 memory in the mobile computing space allowed for higher memory bandwidths while using less power, which resulted in improved system performance and potentially longer battery life. Now, with the availability of high-density 4GB Crucial DDR3-1333MHz SODIMM modules, mobile users will push the limits of notebook system performance and speed even further," said Jim Jardine, Lexar Media's senior worldwide product manager.

    Great stuff, now if only they'd all start pushing 4GB modules for desktops, where they are more likely needed.

    there are plenty of 4gb modules on the market - they just command a price premium for the ability to have 8gb in 2 slots.

    what id like to see, is netbooks/ULV cpus that support more then just 2gb ram. I want to be able to slap an 4gb ram in a netbook & have it work with it.

    if they can fit 4GB in a module this size, it means they can make 8GB desktop modules should they choose.

    Yep, in fact in those glorious days of cheap memory modules 1.5yr ago there were already good ddr2-667 4GB modules and at affordable prices but they were so hidden from public eye in only a year transition from DS 1GB (512Mb) to DS 2GB (1Gb) that were polluting market so much no body even thought to look for more.

    To keep the stroy shorrt yep they could make 8GB modules even with slower 4Gb chips some 6+ month now (Elpida bragging announcing 16GB server modules)




    This article misses one small detail. Are those standard 1.5V ddr3 or LP-DDR3 1.35V?

    --edit--
    Probably standard when they claiming core iX compatibility.
