G.Skill introduced ECO low-voltage DDR3 memory kits, these modules for the Intel Lynnfield platform run at a voltage of only 1.35V.
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.
Here's an overview of the new G.Skill ECO DDR3 1.35V memory kits:
