With so much attention being paid Ultrabooks, now and for the foreseeable future, Patriot Memory figured it might as well launch a memory line specifically for these types of systems. Hence today's unveiling of the company's "Memory for Ultrabook" line, which consist of ultra low power (ULP) SODIMMs compatible with Intel's 3rd Generation Core processor family. “Patriot Memory and Intel have been leaders in delivering the fastest and most optimized technologies for mobile platforms," said William Lai, Director of Product Management at Patriot Memory. "We’re excited to have Intel’s support as we launch our Memory for Ultrabook SODIMM memory. These modules will provide excellent... Read more...
Are you still wielding a USB 2.0-based NAND flash memory drive? If so, maybe it's time to think about stepping up to a SuperSpeed USB 3.0-based thumb drive, especially now that USB 3.0 ports are fast becoming ubiquitous with just about every new motherboard and system being released these days. One of your options is Patriot Memory's new Supersonic Boost XT USB 3.0 drive, a rugged little stick that's fast and should be able to withstand a bit of clumsiness, like dropping it down a flight of stairs. The Supersonic Boost XT measures just over 6 centimeters long and 2 centimeters wide and comes housed in an ultra-durable rubberized case "for extreme protection," Patriot Memory says. "The Supersonic... Read more...

If you're an enthusiast, there's a high likelihood you're enjoying the primary benefit of 64-bit computing, that being gobs of memory space to work or play with.  We do a bit of heavy lift around these parts, crunching video and the like, and at the end of the day it literally pays to have a lot of memory at our disposal.  Most times, heavy-duty multitasking isn't just a requirement, it's more like attention deficit disorder; yeah we probably need to seek help but what a way to go.  Regardless, 12GB systems are becoming commonplace in the lab now here at HH and with a triple-channel X58 setup, filling up all six of those memory slots with 2GB sticks just seems impractical and inefficient. ...

Patriot Memory added new densities, speeds, and triple-channel kits to its Viper Xtreme series of DDR3 memory solutions.

Perhaps we're dating ourselves here, but 'back in the day' your choice of memory had a direct impact on your system's overclockability. Save for extreme overclockers with fancy LN2 setups and aspirations of setting world records, RAM isn't nearly as important anymore, but until you can punch the power button on a RAM-less PC and still have it boot up, you're going to see memory makers continue to crank out new kits. One of the latest comes from Patriot Memory, which just announced its DDR3 Viper Xtreme Series. "Patriot has been offering some of the fastest performance memory solutions in the world, and our Viper Xtreme series delivers a high-end solution with a custom heatshield built around... Read more...
