Why is the speed of this RAM module shown as 1866 MT/s instead of 1866 Mhz?
When it comes to measuring DDR RAM speed, MT/s and MHz are used interchangeably, which is not actually correct.
DDR stands for double data rate which means data is transfers on both the rising and falling edges of the clock signal. Meaning that the transfer rate is roughly twice the speed of the I/O bus clock. This RAM module runs at 933MHz per second, but the effective rate is 1866 megatransfers per second (MT/s) because there are 933 million rising edges per second and 933 million falling edges per second of a clock signal running at 933 MHz.
Dual Voltage for Newer and Older systems
This RAM module supports voltages of both 1.35V and 1.5V. If your original installed memory is 1.5V and you are adding a dual-voltage 1.35V/1.5V module to an open DIMM slot, this dual-voltage RAM module will operate at 1.5V, not 1.35V. If all installed memory modules are dual-voltage 1.35V/1.5V and the system supports DDR3L (1.35V low voltage), then this RAM module will run at 1.35V.
