Patriot Announces New Viper DDR4 SODIMM

Patriot, a leading manufacturer of high performance computer memory, SSDs, gaming peripherals, consumer flash storage solutions and mobile accessories, today announced the release of the Viper DDR4 SODIMM. Designed to support gaming laptops and small form factor systems, such as the Intel NUC, to make gaming more accessible while on the go and free up desk space, the Viper SODIMM will provide a solid system upgrade. The Viper DDR4 SODIMMs will be available individually in capacities of 8GB and 16GB and in dual kits of 16GB (2x8GB) and 32GB (2x16GB). With speeds ranging from 2400MHz to 2800MHz, the Viper SODIMMs will provide users with faster load times and improved response rates. The new Viper DDR4 SODIMMs also feature a high performance heat shield for superior heat dissipation to ensure solid performance during the most grueling gaming session with a low profile that offers flexibility to fit easily into virtually any system.
"We are always looking for ways to enhance the experience for PC gamers," Said Les Henry, Patriot's Vice President of Engineering. "With PC Gaming moving to smaller form factors like laptops, our new DDR4 SODIMMs offer a solution without sacrificing performance." Compatible with XMP 2.0, the Viper SODIMM's plug and play technology makes it the ideal RAM choice for consumers looking to upgrade their laptop, notebook or Mini-ITX system. Backed by Patriot's award winning customer service, the Viper SODIMMs come with a lifetime warranty and are hand tested for quality assurance and system compatibility. Availability The Viper SODIMMs will be available for purchase, worldwide, online and in stores starting June 10, 2016 for a starting MSRP of $34.99 USD for the 2400HMz 8GB single DIMM to $169.99 USD for the 2800MHz 32GB dual kit.

I know once installed they are hidden inside a laptop and probably never seen again, but the green PCB is ugly and should have been black or a matching red.

I do wonder sometimes why SODIMMs haven't taken over on desktop boards, or at least become a thing on some boards. When DIMMs first arrived they were comically bigger than SIMMs but they had to be as the RAM chips were bigger, these days that's not even an issue as the space needed for the chips is smaller.

Hell having said that Crucial sell 2400MHz low profile DIMMs that are no taller than the DIMM slot and come in sizes up to 32GB per stick. Despite this the market is full of DIMMs with goudy heat spreader fins that make them triple the height they need to be, and yet manufacturers can produce 16GB SODIMMs which don't even need heat spreaders and ones that have tiny heat spreaders that don't add to the size.

NB: Yes I do realise that the triple height super armoured RAM sticks usually have high MHz ratings, but I don't really care for E-peen, I just prefer something that does the job.
