Is there different types of DDR3 RAM?
DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 also has an eight-bit prefetch bus. Other common speeds for DDR3 SDRAM modules include PC3-8500 (DDR3-1066; 8500MBps throughput); PC3-12800 (DDR3-1600); and PC3-17000 (DDR3-2133). NOTE. Memory modules of the same type with the same speed memory chips can have different CAS latency (CL) values.
Does it matter what DDR3 RAM I get?
DDR3 was slightly faster about half the time, and typically only a few percentage points separated the two memory types. There are potentially other differences as well. It’s possible to get larger DDR3 memory modules, but many won’t work in standard desktop motherboards.
Can DDR fit in DDR3?
All DDR memories are mutually incompatible. The power supply for each generation also varies: for DDR1 DIMMs, it’s 2.5V; DDR2, 1.8V; DDR3, 1.5V; and DDR4, 1.2V.
How do I know if RAM is compatible?
From the Windows Start menu, search for System Information on your computer and open the app. Under System Summary, you will find your Processor. Using this information, search for your specific processor on the manufacturer website to see what RAM is compatible with your processor.
Is 1600mhz RAM good?
For most games, 1600mhz RAM is a good enough speed. You won’t run into many issues, as long as the other pieces of your build can live up to the speed. It won’t make up for any lacking anywhere else, which is a problem when you compare it to faster options. You will be limited by those pieces, not by the RAM.
Can I add 8GB RAM to 4GB laptop?
If you want to add more RAM than that, say, by adding an 8GB module to your 4GB module, it’ll work but the performance of a portion of the 8GB module will be lower. In the end that extra RAM probably won’t be enough to matter (which you can read more about below.)
Can my PC use DDR3 RAM?
Varieties are different but yes, you can put any DDR3 RAM in your PC, If your motherboard has slots for it. If you open up your Case, you will see exactly what type of RAM(DDR2 or DDR3 or DDR4) which is compatible with your motherboard.
Is DDR4 better than DDR3?
Double data rate fourth generation (DDR4) is a memory standard designed as a better, faster, more reliable replacement for DDR3.
Can I change DDR3 to DDR4?
DDR4 RAM is not backwards compatible with DDR3 motherboards and vice versa. The notch has been moved to prevent accidental insertion of the wrong type of memory. You will not be able to change to DDR-4. The notch will not accept.
Can I mix DDR3 and DDR4?
Your system is only compatible with DDR4 memory. The layout of the pins on a DDR3 modules are completely different to that of a DDR4 module. You would be unable to install the DDR3 modules into your motherboard, if you attempted to do so, you would damage the module and/or the motherboard itself.
Is DDR3 still good?
While there is not a hugely significant difference, DDR4 is faster and better than DDR3. However, DDR3 is still a great option for gamers, and it is not always worth upgrading your PC, though DDR4 is more future proof. When looking at the speed of the DDR4 RAM, it is typically around 2400 MHz, which is fantastic.
Can I use 1333mHz and 1600mHz RAM together?
You can, both sticks will run at 1333MHz. As long as your motherboard supports more than 8gb of RAM, which most of them do.
Can you mix brands of RAM?
Can You Mix Different RAM Brands? In short, the answer to this question is: yes. No matter the brand, speed, and size of the RAM, you theoretically can get it to work on your system; though it may prove to be problematic. Also, depending on the setup & workload, you may not even notice a difference in performance.
Can I use 1600mHz RAM in 1333mHz motherboard?
The compatibility of the ram depends more on your motherboard than your cpu. If your motherboard supports the 1600mHz, then it is likely that the g3258 will also. However, the cpu spec sheet says that it only supports up to 1333mHz, so if you use 1600mHz sticks it may downclock them to 1333mHz.
