System utilizes one of the following processors:
2.5GHz Dual-Core Intel Core i5, 2.3GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7 or 2.6GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7
|Specs||DDR3 PC3-12800 CL=11 Unbuffered NON-ECC DDR3-1600 1.35V lead free halogen free for Mac|
|Bullet Features||Increases system performance|
To use DDR3 memory, your system must have both a 204-pin SODIMM slot and a chipset that supports DDR3 memory. A DDR3 SODIMM will not fit into DDR2 or DDR memory sockets.
SODIMMs are smaller and thinner than regular DIMMs, and the 204-pin SODIMM PCBs are always ~2.6 inches long and are usually around 1.18 inches high (though the heights can vary slightly). They consist of a number of memory components (usually black) that are attached to a printed circuit board (usually green). The number of memory components on a 204-pin SODIMM's printed circuit board (PCB) can vary, but the PCB will always have 102 pins on the front and the back both, for a total of 204 pins. The gold pins on the bottom of the SODIMM provide the connection between the memory module and the memory socket.
