Review: Low voltage modules can be fast


This article is available in German.

After Intel caused a stir for module makers by demanding lower voltages, DDR3 modules at 1.65V became the most common memory type. Now the module manufactures raised the bar by introducing 1.35V modules which do not run only at normal speeds, but are designed to please the overclocker crowd.

GSkill send us their 4GB Kit, which is rated at 1600MHz and with 7-8-7-2T latencies or if you use the SPD settings you will get 8-8-8-1T.
