G.Skill International Enterprise, a Taiwan-based manufacturer of memory modules and solid state storage (SSD) devices, has released low-voltage DDR3 modules for Intel's Lynnfield Core i5 and Core i7 platforms. The new ECO series operates at 1.35V, compared to standard DDR3 modules at 1.65V.
According to G.Skill's internal lab tests, 1.35V memory modules produce 16% lower temperatures than 1.65V ones.
G.Skill said its new low-voltage modules, clocked at 1333MHz or 1600MHz, are available in 4GB (2GBx2) dual-channel kits.
