Exceleram Announces 8 GB DDR3 Module At A Great Price

Exceleram announced a new value-segment 8 GB DDR3 memory module, the E30200A. This no-frills module lacks any heatspreader, because it probably doesn't need it. It can operate at DDR3-1333 MHz (PC3-10700) speed with CAS latency of 9T, and DRAM voltage of 1.5V. More importantly, it is priced at US $49.99 a piece, making 16 GB (2x 8 GB) dual-channel possible at just $99.98. Compare that to the prices of 2x 8 GB kits available on Newegg.

“[The] target for us was to find a solution for our customers to obtain a new 8GB 1333MHz CL9 Memory Module with the price at only US$ 49.99. This price combined with the strong quality level as well as Exceleram always does, it’s a really tough target for us to reach. But now we have got the solution, the E30200A Memory Module,” said by Steffen Eisenstein, the Product Manager of Exceleram.

That is pretty cheap for 8GB sticks. It would be good for people that need a high amount of RAM.

In the Netherlands we already have 16GB at €69.90 for a Quad Channel kit 1600MHz, that would be $95.38 today.

That's on four sticks though. This is 8GB on 1 stick.

Yeah but that's using four 4 GB modules. Find one using two 8 GB modules.

Moar 8GB sticks! Here all sticks without ECC is above €100. ECC sticks (1333Mhz) can be had for like €70.

This is 1/10 of the price last year.

What's the catch?

overstock?
Overproduction in the memory industry in general. They got carried away by Intel's "make moar DDR3" cry.

Wow, 64GB of RAM in a LGA2011 mobo for less than 3000SEK?
I am so sold on this!
But please make a 16GB version, 128GB at POST will look just that much better! :)

Wonder if these would run comfortably at 1600. It's a good price but only if your going to buy four sticks otherwise you can get 2x 8GB kits with better timings/speed for less (in the UK anyway).

I would much rather just have a program that can load an entire folder into memory and have all the programs use that (like Superfetch, but I get to choose what to put in there), that way we could do that right now.

I'm thinking games, how 'bout you?

That's a ramdisk what you described right there.
For example, I use a program called "RamDisk Plus" to do just that. Only 768MB in size though. Mostly as browsers and other progs that use a cache. With these 8GB sticks I'd setup a 20-50GB ramdisk.

My DDR2 ramdisk is slowslowslow.

I was thinking more like superfetch with a right-click menu.

This is it. It's a virtual disk drive. It automatically loads up at startup from a physical drive and backups itself upon system shutdown.

I'm talking about the OS caching a file, not setting up an entire disk inside memory.
