Current BF deal on Amazon, looks like the cheapest price ever. I have a 2x8 GB in my Alienware m15 and the better timings (15-17-17-35) can make a significant difference over the standard timings (19-19-19-43) found on most OEM DDR4 that comes with laptops. The XMP profiles in them applied automatically for me (confirmed with CPU-Z), so it's literally a 5 minute job to drop them in a laptop.

Do you know if Costco 's HP 14" laptop (14-dq-033cl) that went on sale for $280 has XMP that can be enabled? I read if XMP can't be enabled, you can't get laptop memory running at 2666.

Looks like awesome deal for 8gb! But can only buy 1. Wish I had another Amazon account so I can buy 2 for my new HP laptop. Tempting to buy it though.

That's what I thought too, but I did some research online and it's not always the case. For example, my Alienware m15 has no XMP options in the BIOS and it still applied and ran flawlessly, CPU-Z confirmed timings and the performance difference in RAM heavy games like PUBG is readily apparent. I'm not sure the XMP will be applied in every laptop they're put into, but it certainly can in laptops that don't have any XMP options in the BIOS.

I have Samsung branded memory of the same size that was pulled from my new Thinkpad. I am willing to let it go for cheaper than this. PM me if interested.

No as per the Costco laptop forum. Wondering if I should take a chance?

Really nice price, but debating on whether to buy it before actually getting a new laptop. Lol.

The good thing about Kingston Impact ram is the XMP timing is also replicated in the JEDEC timing so it will work for the HP icelake laptop without any issues at 2666. For confirmation, I have installed the 2933 and 3200 rated Kingston HyperX Impact memory and they are confirmed to be running at those rates.

Ships in 2- 5 weeks?

I guess it gives you plenty of time to cancel if you can club a seal for a better deal.

Sorry I'm a noob when it comes to RAM... Is this compatible with the Lenovo S340 from this deal?
