    Earlier this year, Mushkin acquired Exceleram to expand its technological expertise and manufacturing footprint. Exceleram had been in the business of high-performance gaming system memory modules for quite some time. Post acquisition, Mushkin lets Exceleram products, both current and future, retain the Exceleram brand name and product logos. News is, that the company launched two dual-channel DDR3 memory kits.

    The EX3-21800X2-S2 is a 2x 1GB kit, that operates at 1800 MHz DDR, with timings of 8-8-8-24 and DIMM voltage of 1.85~1.90 V. The EX3-41600Q2-SM is a 2x 2GB kit. This is where the bank density eats into other parameters such as timings and frequency. It operates at 1600 MHz DDR, with looser timings of 9-9-9-27. On a positive note, the module voltage has been pushed down to 1.7 V, and it won't be too far-fetched to estimate, that the modules could operate at 1333 MHz at much lower voltages. While there's no word out on the pricing yet, Mushkin on its part states that the products would sell at "unbeatable prices".

    They will work with a P45/X48 and a QX9650 or AM3 :D even better than Nehalem!

    I'm sure it will do 1333 MHz below the 1.65 V mark.

    Yeah, but it wont do the advertised speeds :( .

    This nehalem memory controller seems like a step in the wrong direction IMO :shadedshu

    Not many current 1600 MHz/1800 MHz kit will work at "advertised speeds" on a Bloomfield, at sub-1.6 V. Surprise! The winning factor here, should be its price.

    From what I am reading the memory industry may come out with a whole new line of ram once nehalem comes out. Rumor as that maybe be it will be interesting to see what develops.

    Whatever they do, they better start pumping out JEDEC-compliant 1.5v DDR3 modules fast, or they're going to be in deep trouble...

    Just about all of these modules out ARE Jedec compliant. JEDEC specs are only 1.5V for DDR3-800 6-6-6, DDR3-1066 8-8-8, DDR3-1333 10-10-10, DDR3-1600 11-11-11. Any of these kits will do that, and most likely more, at 1.5V.
