Lexar Releases Inexpensive Crucial DDR3 Memory Kits

By - Source: Tom's Hardware | B 0 comment

Lexar has announced the availability of its new Crucial DDR3 triple-channel memory kits for the Intel Core i7 platform.

Lexar Media launched its new Crucial DDR3 triple-channel memory kits on Tuesday, available in 3 GB, 6 GB and 12 GB sizes. Although a little late to the scene, with prices starting at just $85.99, the new Crucial DDR3 memory kits make for very competitive offerings. Unlike many other DDR3 memory modules though, the new Crucial DDR3 kits lack a heat spreader and do not offer much in the way of eye-candy.

Starting with the most expensive of the new Crucial DDR3 memory kits we have the server-class 12 GB kit (4 GB x 3), priced at a whopping $1149.99. The memory has a speed of 1066 MHz (PC3-8500), a CAS Latency (CL) of 7 and is of the registered, ECC variety. The memory has a rated voltage of 1.5 V, which is standard for DDR3 memory. It should be noted that a memory voltage setting higher than 1.65 V is not recommended for use with the Intel Core i7 platform.

Next up we have five different new Crucial 6 GB kits (2 GB x 3), offered in speeds of both 1066 MHz (PC3-8500) and 1333 MHz (PC-10600). The 1066 MHz versions have a CL of 7 and a price tag of $179.00 (non-ECC), $358.99 (ECC) or $568.99 (registered, ECC) each. The 1333 MHz versions have a CL of 9 and cost $209.99 (non-ECC) or $418.99 (ECC) each. Voltages are rated at 1.5 V.

Last up we have five different new Crucial 3 GB kits (1 GB x 3), also offered in speeds of both 1066 MHz (PC3-8500) and 1333 MHz (PC-10600). The 1066 MHz versions have a CL of 7 and a price tag of $85.99 (non-ECC), $178.99 (ECC) or $298.99 (registered, ECC) each. The 1333 MHz versions have a CL of 9 and cost $105.00 (non-ECC) or $208.99 (ECC) each. Voltages are also rated at 1.5 V.
