Can I use UDIMM instead of SO-DIMM?

Yes! one can insert DIMM RAM in UDIMM slots only when both are of the same type i.e. DDR1/2/3/4/5.

What is UDIMM and SO-DIMM?

Sodimm is laptop ram (small outline dual in-line memory module) Udimm is unbuffered ram , which is a ram characteristic and most laptop and pc’s use this with ddr2, ddr3, ddr3L, ddr4 and others.

How do I know if my RAM is SO-DIMM or UDIMM?

You can identify SO-DIMMs primarily by their size; a standard DIMM is slightly over five inches long and an SO-DIMM is slightly over 2.5 inches long. A DDR3-SDRAM SO-DIMM has 204 pins and a DDR3-SDRAM DIMM has 240 pins.

Is UDIMM better?

RDIMM is REGISTERED memory and UDIMM is UNREGISTERED memory. This means a few things: UDIMM is limited to two DIMMs per memory channel and UDIMMs offer slightly better memory bandwidth for one DIMM per channel. However when using two or three DIMMs per channel, you will get better memory bandwidth with RDIMMs.

What is UDIMM used for?

Short for unbuffered (or unregistered) dual inline memory module, UDIMM is a type of volatile memory chip, used mostly in desktop and laptop computers.

Can I mix DIMM and UDIMM?

What is the difference between Sdram and UDIMM?

udimm- unregistered double inline memory module. sdram – synchronous dynamic random access memory. Sdram – can be unregistered and registered. (and it has to be of same type DDR, DDR2, DDR3 or DDR4).

Is UDIMM unbuffered?

Short for unbuffered (or unregistered) dual inline memory module, UDIMM is a type of volatile memory chip, used mostly in desktop and laptop computers. It is a conventional type of RAM.

Is Sdram the same as UDIMM?

Can I use DIMM and UDIMM RAM together?

The answer to your question is no. UDIMM and DIMM are meant for two different types of motherboards. And besides that point it is not good practice to mix RAM anyway.

What is the difference between UDIMM and Sdram?

Is UDIMM normal RAM?

When compared with registered memory, conventional memory is usually referred to as unbuffered memory or unregistered memory. When manufactured as a dual in-line memory module (DIMM), a registered memory module is called an RDIMM, while unregistered memory is called UDIMM or simply DIMM.

Is UDIMM compatible with DIMM?

It is Unbuffered and is non-ECC. It conforms to the industry standard UDIMM layout of 240 pins and is compatible with computers that take DDR3 UDIMM memory. A dual inline memory module (DIMM) consists of a number of memory components (usually black) that are attached to a printed circuit board (usually green).

What is UDIMM vs DIMM?

An unbuffered DIMM can be either a full-sized DIMM or an SO-DIMM. Because buffered memory is necessary only for server and workstation computers, all SO-DIMMs are UDIMMs. In addition, most full-sized DIMMs are UDIMMs. A UDIMM lacks the microprocessor present in the middle of buffered memory modules.

What is UDIMM memory?

UDIMM (unregistered memory) is a type of memory chip used mostly in desktop and laptop computers. More commonly called unbuffered memory, UDIMMs run faster than registered memory (RDIMM) and cost less, but are not quite as stable as RDIMMs.
