Mushkin intros ECO2 DDR3L memory
We all know that Skylake will appear in early August and we all know that this chip will support both DDR3 and DDR4 memory. There’s a catch, though – Skylake will support low-voltage DDR3 memory at 1.35V and not your regular DDR3 SDRAM at 1.5V. This fact will leave many people who want to get a Skylake chip but not buy the still expensive DDR4 memory in the dark.
Perhaps to take advantage of this market situation Mushkin has announced the new ECO2 line of DDR3L memory. The new memory runs at 1600 MHz effective at 1.35V and offers timings of 9-9-9-24 CR1. Mushkin offers 4 GB and 8 GB memory modules in the new ECO2 line and dual-channel and quad-channel kits of 8 GB, 16 GB and 32 GB. The memory modules also have aluminum heat spreaders made of high quality aluminum and a low profile so that users can install large heat sinks with ease. All ECO2 memory is hand-tested and comes with lifetime warranty.
Here’s what you will have to pay to get the new ECO2: a 4 GB module costs USD 26, while an 8 GB module sells for USD 50. Kits of 8 GB (2 x 4 GB), 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) and 32 GB (4 x 8 GB) cost USD 52, USD 85 and USD 191, respectively.
