Super Talent Launches Green Memory for iMac, MacBook Pro

According to the manufacturer, the devices run at 1.35 volts instead of 1.5 volts, promising Apple users to support their green peace of mind and a few dollars in their power usage.

Super Talent offers the memory as 4 GB and 8 GB DDR3L-1600 SODIMMs versions for the 15-inch and 13-inch MacBook Pros, as well as the recent 21.5-inch and 27-inch iMac models with Core i7 and Core i5 processors.

There was no information on availability and pricing.

    Is it magical and revolutionary? :P

    At least for once, the "holding it wrong" will work, if is not set up properly, it won't work or not even fit...... though now that I realize it's a mac, I wonder how many will be willing to open their magical computers.

    What is the point of these reduced voltage RAM modules? You only save a watt or two, and so that barely ends up saving you anything.
  • yea, you also need to spent a lot more green money to buy it.

  • Whats so different from DDR3 mac edition to a regular DDR3 ram, besides a higher price?
  • Vladislaus
    if they wanted eco friendliness why didn't they released a DDR3U RAM module. Also, I think that they're preaching these memories to the wrong choir. People that use Mac don't have a history of changing the hardware from their computers, mostly because Apple voids the warranty if you open an iMac or a MacBook.

    didn't super talent get the memo that apple does not manufacture green products anymore?

    jupiter optimus maximusWhats so different from DDR3 mac edition to a regular DDR3 ram, besides a higher price?I honestly do not think there is any difference, just more money for the sake of getting more money.

    It's not about saving in the electric bill is about the battery lasting a bit longer due to less energy used by the RAM.

    @jupiter optimus maximus
    yes the only difference is the price and that the company took the time to test the memory with a mac, all you have to do is read the reviews and find out whether the memory is mac compatible or not, and save some money. Its doesn't need to be mac compatible to work with mac.

    thats a negative. Apple's does not void the warranty because you open a computer. besides the MacBook Air and the Retina, Apple consider the Ram and HHD user replaceable and DOES NOT void the warranty. I have had a few Macs I know this first hand. A few months ago they replaced the casing of a white macbook which I upgraded the HDD and the RAM.
