Patriot's New 32GB Modules Available: UDIMM up to DDR4-3600, SODIMM up to DDR4-3000by Andrei Frumusanu on June 9, 2020 12:00 PM EST
Patriot has released a new series of DDR4 32GB memory modules in its VIPER GAMING STEEL series, complementing the 32GB offerings of the Blackout series as well as for the first time offering such a capacity in a 32GB SODIMM format at speeds of up to DDR-3000.
The biggest addition to Patriot’s repertoire is the new 32GB SODIMM modules, allowing laptop and SFF PC users with corresponding memory slots to double up on the maximum configurable memory all whilst retaining high performance speeds. The small form-factor modules are available in their new 32GB size at DDR4-3000, -2666 and -2400 speeds with timings ranging from 18-20-20-43 at 1.25V for the higher frequency SKU to 15-15-15-35 at 1.2V for the lowest frequency part.
Pricing for the new SODIMM modules land at $145 for the DDR4-3000 modules and $140 for the -2666 and -2400 variants and are available now on Amazon and Newegg.
Although patriot already had 32GB modules available in its UDIMM Blackout series, it’s expanding that offering to the Steel series, which essentially includes the more stylish heat spreader.
The new 32GB modules are available as single modules or as a 2x32GB kit up to speeds of DDR-3600 and timings of 18-22-22-42 at 1.35V. The kit is now also available on Amazon and Newegg, and goes for $310.

Samus - Wednesday, June 10, 2020 - linkJesus, 64GB RAM in a mainstream laptop for $300.
PeachNCream - Wednesday, June 10, 2020 - linkI suppose that yes, it could be a religious experience for someone to obtain 64GB of RAM for a laptop.
abufrejoval - Wednesday, June 10, 2020 - linkIt was an ADATA 32GB DDR4-3200 SO-DIMM for me, at €130 I just couldn't resist giving it a try.
Got it yesterday and put it into one of my Atom J5005 based slient µ-servers first, which are currently running with 32GB (official maximum is 8GB).
Unfortunately that refused to boot.
Put it into a Skylake based Gigabyte P35X v6 notebook next (with GTX 1070 used for GPU compute) and that jumped from 32GB to 48GB no problem.
I'll get another stick over the week-end and enjoy 64GB of RAM in a very slim (but terribly noisy under load) notebook, that could also expand to 20TB of solid state storage (2x 2.5" and 2x NVMe). With 1TB on µSD these days we know that density is not the issue when it comes to capacity.
I wish they'd do ECC variants at 13% extra cost and similar speeds: At these capacities I start to worry about bit flips on stuff that runs 24x7.
That notebook proves that you can put a quite usable amount of server compute power into a rather compact form factor and with a shoebox sized Mini-ITX chassis have it operate very quietly.
NVMe or even 2.5" SSD storage provides storage speeds and capacities that used to require two racks of disks not long ago and with these DRAM densities and core counts exploding... the portable virtual data center becomes very real.
