Kingston Clarksdale demo shows DDR3 running at 1.35V

Kingston told DriverHeaven this morning that Intel’s Clarksdale demonstration showed a system running at 28w idle and 70w load using specially designed low voltage 1.35V DDR3 – which is a considerable drop in power draw when compared with the standarised 1.5V DDR3 platform.

Kingston also told us that this is a perfectly viable technology that they are working on and is not some specialised cheat to help Intel record power drain figures. Whether this ram is based on the 1600mhz 1.35v Elpida 40nm tech that was just announced we are not sure, but it seems a reasonable assumption.

While this is interesting, we can take it a step further and analyse that this memory should in theory offer some amazingly high levels of overclocking when it reaches the market. Kingston declined to give specific dates on the release of the low voltage memory but we would assume it will be sometime in early 2010.
