Dell has developed a new RAM standard for ultrabooks
Dell has introduced an alternative to the long-playing SO-DIMM standard for ultrabooks. The newly created form factor will reduce the thickness of devices and the number of connectors on motherboards without compromising performance.

Dell has developed a new RAM standard for ultrabooks


The new standard was named CAMM (Compression Attached Memory Module). Compared to current solutions, it is smaller: due to the use of a flat contact area, it is 57% thinner. Such dimensions make it possible to install these modules in compact devices, while one universal bracket will replace a pair of traditional ones. The amount of DDR5 RAM (4800 MHz) will be 16-128 gigabytes, the most advanced models will be 2-rank.




Each CAMM stick has its own PMIC chips. Dell says the development will be allowed to be used by other laptop makers as well, as the standard is publicly available. It is curious that the proprietary connector can be converted into a traditional SO-DIMM using an adapter if desired.



More detailed technical characteristics of the device are not yet known. Dell's business models are among the first commercial Ultrabooks to receive the new modules. It's not clear whether the strips will be commercially available to upgrade laptops.
