GeIL debuts 1.2V DDR3 memory

Posted on Tuesday, June 16 2009 @ 00:15:34 CEST by


Bright Side of News spotted GeIL has rolled out ultra-low voltage DDR3 memory modules that require only 1.2V.
To me, though, the low voltage DDR3-1333 kit is interesting as it gives all the necessary speed for a reasonable Core i7 midrange system while saving nearly half on the power and heat vs the same speed 1.5 volt standard DDR3 parts. Heat spreaders become an absolute waste then (well, maybe they were ALWAYS the waste with DRAM anyway), and the memory pretty much stops being a noticeable heat source in your system.

As you may know, the major vendors including Hynix and Samsung have already defined the roadmap that includes the ramp up of 1.35 volt DDR3 in 2010 and 1.2 volt DDR3 in 2011 just prior to the DDR4 arrival at - yes - standard 1.2 volts then.
