Mushkin introduced the ECO2, a DDR3L-1600 MHz (PC3L-12800) memory module. Available in 4 GB and 8 GB densities, and coming in single-module, dual-channel, and quad-channel kits, the module ticks at 800 MHz (1600 MHz DDR3-effective), with timings of 9-9-9-24 CR1, and module voltage of 1.35V. DDR3L could play an important role in the transition of mainstream memory standard from DDR3 to DDR4, with the upcoming Intel Core "Skylake" processors, which feature integrated memory controllers that natively support DDR3L-1600 and DDR4-2400 (or DDR4-2666 as some reports suggest). Expect mainstream pricing for these modules.
