I'm interested.

How much?

It's nice to see an 8GB module so there's a way to fill those motherboards with support for 32GB RAM, 4 slots. But the low voltage part doesn't really matter. You barely save any power that way.

Man, the 8GB RAM in my PC looks like nothing in comparison. I could sure run a lot of VMs if I had, say, 32GB RAM.

I think the low voltage is more for OC'ers who want to keep their output <= the traditional 1.5v.  I might be wrong though.

up until now all 8gb ddr3 sticks of ram I have been able to find are registerd dimms and ECC

making them worthless to the casual home power user

is this one non ecc? or is it yet another piece of hardware that will not work in a  triple channle set up?

Well, if it's tri-channeled then 8GB would be a bad config right off the bat. My guess is, this is more for the dual channeled boards/chipsets like ones from AMD or the 1155/1156 sockets from Intel. The 1366 is a tri channel chipset. If it is tri channeled then you would need to configure it by a number divisible by 3 like 24GB in order for it to run at optimal speeds.

 

Although I haven't been to the vendor's site, it should provide the techinical details of the memory. I would also imagine you would need to check your MB vendor to ensure they even support a 8GB module.

Last time I heard, in order for TriChannel to work you need three sticks of ram. A single stick of ram isn't going to run in tri channel. So you need to buy three of these bad boys for tri channel. 24Gigs or if you just have to do it and you have six triple channel memory slots then that would give you a total of 48gigs of ram running in triple channel. Just make sure your motherboard supports 48gigs or more of ram.

Imagine running three of these in a triple channel setup, 24Gigs o-ram. Dual triple channel made up of six of these bad boys will bring that up to a cool 48Gigs Of freaking ram. And Bill Gates once said that nobody would ever need any more than 640Kilobytes of ram.

Bill Gates never said that.

How many times are people going to misquote that misinterpretation?

Also, one stick of these is enough. In fact I'd argue 6GB is pretty much the limit. Why? Nobody codes games for 64-bit OSes (as far as I know). Thus you're limited to that 2GB cap set by WoW64. I couldn't complete a game of Civ5 because of it.

"Bill Gates never said that.

And Marie Antoinette never said "Let them eat cake." 

But it's too convenient a quote for people to give up, even if it is false. It will probably never die.

Because only gamers will be interested in this memory?

 

I could sure use a boost for some of the Photoshop/texturing work I do (for fun, btw) or for my AutoCAD work where you can sometimes get pretty crazy file sizes (not for fun for me, but some people *shrugs*).

Video encoding is another application.

 

In my eyes, I need at least 16 gb minimum for personal use.

Take a lesson from the Bill Gates quote that he never said:

 

Don't, ever, say you think people will only need "X" memory at the most.
