Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of Flash storage solutions and DRAM memory modules, today announced they are now shipping their new "Green DDR3" to support low-voltage platforms. Our JEDEC standard 1.35V DDR3 SDRAM-VLP is 2GB based on a 1Gb component. This DDR3 memory product features: lower cooling costs, higher efficiency, and most importantly dramatic power savings. "Sometimes doing the right thing is hard; here is on that is easy. With our new green DDR3 you can increase your systems performance and save on total costs, while simultaneously reducing your CO2 footprint"., - SuperTalent COO, CH Lee.

awesome :cool: less space, less voltage, easier cooling.

I can't wait when they reach 1V or even sub-1 V

Very nice to see RAM getting even more efficient and cooler running. The only thing holding good small gamer pc's back now are full-sized GFX cards. I wonder when those are gonna get really small.

"Vertically optimized." Made me think of the phrase "horizontally challenged."

Whatever happened to good old words like "short" and "fat?"

Anyway, looks good. Drone, I think we can expect to see ≤1v with DDR4.

I saw some of these short sticks at walmart eons ago. Still wondering why all ram hasn't taken on this form factor. Not like there isn't plenty of empty space on the pcb, and will help with those ill designed towers that block ram slots.

I would consider buying this if I were doing an upgrade that involved DDR3, and the price was right.

and most importantly dramatic power savings.
So how much dramatic power savings could one make using 1.35v ram over 1.5v ? :wtf:

I dont buy into all this green nonsense anyway, not when we run 125w processors and GPU's 150w+ whats 2-3 watts for a ram stick and 5-8 watts for a HDD

I think the point was the power savings aren't "dramatic".

Yeah, almost like looking at someone who died in a woodchipper versus someone who just got shot cleanly in the chest...I guess it's better for the wake to have an intact body but either way you're dead, only difference is appearance...and point is when you have quad core and hex core processors overclocked to 4.0 ghz + and gtx 480's using hundreds of watts sometimes in tri-sli your system is KILLING jigawatts of electricity and you only APPEAR more green and to give a rats ass about being "green" by using some stupid memory module that as pointed out must save all of what...single digit wattage at most? Please...I'm sorry it's just such a fucking farce and I merely puked at that quote the supertalent CEO said...I mean please, if you're going to go green...why not just get an atom system with a gt240 gpu or something that uses truly a small amount of energy and be "green" and reduce your flippin carbon footprint for real not that it even really makes a difference or helps jack shit but at least it's a real measurable difference

right, it's not only a farce but just an insult to an intelligent person's intelligence, it's just anti-capitalism and anti-business bullshit disguised as "let's save the planet" when it's doing just fine and we are such tiny bits of it that we haven't the power to destroy it...EVEN if we did with something we'd wipe ourselves out...and earth would over time still would heal itself as it does with every disaster man-made AND natural which there are plenty of! So, with this said, I'm glad I have an i7 build in the works with 2000mhz cas 7 Supertalent memory (ironic considering this story was apparently about SuperTalent memory) an evga classified 3 way board, either a gtx 460-480 (haven't got that part yet) and a 160 gb 10k raptor I have left over...so I'm happy to say I won't be environmentally friendly at all once I top that off with an i7 930 processor on air that will be in the 4.5 ghz range...even if I got the gtx460 versus the 480 I'd still be using shitloads of juice with that stuff...particularly running linx or prime 95 for hours to stress test it! So speaking of what's next...we eliminate stress testing and doing anything that uses 100% memory and Cpu? I mean think about it...how much energy do we all waste benchmarking/stability testing all of our rigs if you add all of us techies up around the world? In a simple equation:

Green movement = FAIL

I could see some use if it was "green" ECC DDR3 as even if each stick only used say 0.25w less how many sticks of ram do you think are in a data center? although i'm not thinking about its "green" effects, i was thinking more along the lines of (slightly) reduced power usage thus reduced running cost.

If "green" ram could cut a couple hundred KW/h of power usage per day on a big server farm it would be a reasonable ammount of reduced power cost over the lifetime of the sticks, also i think lower power SODIMM's would be useful for squeezing an extra few min out of a battery but when it comes to a desktop pc then low power ram will have no noticable effect on power usage or heat output.
