What is LP DDR3?

Eh, I don't know if I'd say that. It has different packaging/pinout, and different parameters, such that LP and regular DDR3 are in no way compatible.

AFAIK, LP and regular DDR are sort of two different streams of memory tech, that are developed in parallel and somewhat independently.
 


No. LPDDR3 (Low Power DDR3) is a mobile DDR SDRAM standard, designed for mobile computing.

Provide us with examples of the DIMMs you are looking at so that we're not guessing at what you're talking about.

OK, Low Power.
For a laptop. This is normal.

That's what it takes, that's what you use.
