So still not really a big deal to me I guess.
I'm not going to instantly switch out all my DDR3 systems with this, but I'd certainly use it on new deployments where over a dozen or more system the benefits can be measured in 'whole' dollars, lol
A few months ago I rolled out new systems for the sales dept and used 1.6v DDR2 as it was about the same price as the standard 1.8v stuff so that was an easy decision.
I do have one specific usage in mind though... if I end up using an Xeon L3426 (45w) in my NESputer, a set of the 1333/1.25v memory seems like a perfect fit.
