G.Skill Announces its ECO Memory: DDR3 at just 1.35V Taipei, Taiwan - 15th October, 2009 - G.Skill International Co. Ltd., manufacturer of extreme performance memory and solid-state storage with solid quality, has today released its ECO low voltage, 1.35V dual channel DDR3 memory for Intel Lynnfield Core i5 and Core i7 platforms.
Compared to the current DDR3 standard voltage of 1.65V, G.Skill’s ECO memory modules require 18% less VDIMM. This can have a great contribution to power efficiency, environmental friendliness and ultimately saves G.Skill customers money. In addition, the lower voltages decreases a system’s operating temperature, resulting in improved stability. G.Skill’s own internal lab tests have revealed, 1.35V memory modules produce 16% lower temperatures than standard 1.65V memory.
These new low voltage modules will be available via G.Skill’s collaborated distributors and resellers soon and include the following specifications:
Nice reduces operational cost on many fronts. The lower voltage, and electrical costs is also reduced by cooling needs being lessened considerably. This should affect a whole system temp by at least a 1/2 degree is not a full one. Which also mean less electrical pull as well as quite cooling apparatus.
Nice timings on that last 1600 kit... especially considering the voltage! Not only does G.Skill make some of the best ram around, their RMA dept. is top notch.
These would be great for laptops.
Though how much does memory contribute to overall power usage and heat vs the CPU and GPU?
5w a stick if I remember right.
Damn, I might have to ditch my six sticks of Corsair Dominator. I'm only pulling 8-8-8-24 timing (granted, at a slightly faster 1.8Ghz) on 1.65V.
