SO-DIMM (Small Outline Dual Inline Memory Module) is a type of memory module used in compact devices such as laptops, mini PCs, and small form factor systems. It comes in various versions depending on the specific memory technology and generation. Here are some common types of SO-DIMM modules:
SO-DIMM DDR4: DDR4 (Double Data Rate 4) SO-DIMMs are widely used in modern laptops and compact systems. They offer improved performance, higher data transfer rates, and increased capacity compared to previous DDR3 modules.
SO-DIMM DDR3: DDR3 (Double Data Rate 3) SO-DIMMs were the previous generation of memory modules before DDR4. They have lower data transfer rates and capacities compared to DDR4 but are still used in older laptops and systems.
SO-DIMM DDR2: DDR2 (Double Data Rate 2) SO-DIMMs were popular in earlier laptops and systems. They have slower data transfer rates and lower capacities compared to DDR3 and DDR4.
SO-DIMM DDR1: DDR1 (Double Data Rate 1) SO-DIMMs were the first generation of DDR memory modules. They are now outdated and rarely used in modern systems.
SO-DIMM ECC: Some SO-DIMM modules come with ECC (Error-Correcting Code) functionality, which provides enhanced reliability and error correction capabilities. These modules are commonly used in servers and workstations.
SO-DIMM for specific brands/models: There may also be SO-DIMM modules specifically designed for certain laptop brands or models. These modules are optimized for compatibility with the specific devices they are intended for.
It's important to check your device's specifications and requirements to determine the appropriate type and generation of SO-DIMM module needed for compatibility and optimal performance.
