Running PerformanceTest9 i notice this information on the RAM memory tab: 4GB DDR3 1.5V, 1.35V

Why does it report both 1,5 Volt and 1,35 Volt at the same time? Does it mean that my memory supports any of those voltages? I believed my memory was DDR3L (L is for low voltage 1.35), but now I'm not sure.

enter image description here


DDR3L is a dual voltage capable memory DIMM, which supports operation at both 1.5V and 1.35V. DDR3L is also pin-compatible with DDR3.

DDR3 is a single voltage capable memory DIMM, which supports 1.5V operation only.

  • I understand then, that my memory (as described on the screen-shot) is actually DDR3L. Great! – Andreas Jansson Oct 12 '18 at 8:44
  • Just searching on google on the model number I found the specification at Hynix web site: skhynix.com/… And they state the same thing: 1.35V but backward Compatible with 1.5V DDR3. – Andreas Jansson Oct 12 '18 at 9:00
