High-Capacity Crucial DDR3 Modules Enable 16 GB Maximum System Memory

Lexar Media, a leading global provider of memory products for digital media, today announced the availability of Crucial 4GB DDR3-1333MHz (PC3-10600) non-ECC UDIMM memory modules, enabling power users to max out their systems with 16GB of RAM. These new modules are compatible with the latest generation of Intel and AMD desktop processors – the Intel Core i5 and Intel Core i7 processors, as well as the AMD AM3 processors. This latest high-capacity Crucial DDR3 memory enables high-density memory installations that take advantage of 64-bit operating systems, including Microsoft Windows 7; less robust 32-bit operating systems only recognize a limited amount of installed RAM.

"Computer technology is constantly evolving, so we're committed to developing and offering a wide variety of Crucial memory products for both PC and Mac system users. Our new Crucial 4GB DDR3, high-density modules speak to this commitment; these products enable users to take advantage of newer 64-bit operating systems, as well as the latest generation of Intel and AMD processors," said Jim Jardine, Lexar Media’s senior worldwide product manager.
Utilizing the award-winning Crucial Memory Advisor online tool, customers can find guaranteed-compatible memory upgrades by simply choosing their system make and model from a drop-down menu. The new 4GB DDR3-1333MHz non-ECC modules are also available through select resellers worldwide and at Like most Crucial memory products, the new 4GB DDR3-1333MHz modules include a limited lifetime warranty.

Awesome! That means that the bigger sticks will make the smaller sticks cheaper in price. Then again, i still want 8gb of ram for some reason.

About bloody time. Will be building a new PC at the end of next year, so hopefully by then there'll be a good selection of 4GB modules out in the wild. :toast:

Looks like MSRP is $899 according to Curcial's website with CL9.
The prices above are for the 12GB (4gb x 3) kit. £621 in the UK.

Just looked across the range and it is consistent: you will be paying £207 per stick of ram.
