German memory maker Exceleram announced a pair of low-voltage, dual-channel, 4 GB DDR3 memory kits for use in mainstream PCs. The first kit, ELV001A, consists of two 2 GB modules that run at PC3-10600 (1333 MHz) DDR speeds with timings of 7-7-7-21, and DRAM voltage of 1.35V; while the second kit, the ELV002A, gives you two modules that run at PC3-12800 (1600 MHz) DDR speeds with timings of 9-9-9-24, at 1.35V. Both kits are estimated by the manufacturer to draw 10% lesser power compared to conventional 1.5V modules. The modules are decked up by "Blue Culvert" heatspreaders to keep cool. While the company did not give out prices, it mentioned that they will be reasonable.
