Is DDR3L RAM and DDR3 RAM compatible?
I have a Notebook that I want to upgrade, Toshiba Satellite C55-B5212KL and (the manufacturer specs are here) where they clearly state that the RAM is a DDR3L.
Now my question comes from the fact that I have dual OS (Windows 8.1 and Linux Mint 17.3) and the outcomes after using an app on Windows and running two commands in Linux are like this:
Outcome of memory under Windows 8.1
Outcome of SPD under Windows 8.1
sudo dmidecode --type 17
On Linux the results are straightforward and they don’t show that my laptop has a DDR3L memory, they say it has a DDR3 @1333 MHz. On the other hand the app in Windos 8.1 also shows a RAM DDR3 but @666 MHz which is confusing for me since I don’t know so much about hardware.
So again, whom should I trust for upgrading my laptop and making the right purchase, my output from two different OS or the manufacturer specs?
