G.Skill Outs Speedy DDR3L 2133MHz 8 GB Laptop RAM Kit

G.Skill has announced its new SO-DIMM Ripjaws, this time around with low-voltage, high-speed memory. The memory, which is intended to be used in conjunction with Haswell-based laptops, runs at a speed of 2133 MHz, and just needs 1.35 V to pull this off. The kit will come with two sticks of memory, 4 GB each, and carry the model number F3-2133C11D-8GRSL. Timings sit at 11-11-11-36.

According to G.Skill the memory should work in all DDR3 SO-DIMM supporting PCs. Supposedly, the system will automatically detect the rated memory speed, and no BIOS fiddling will be needed for the memory to run at the correct speeds.

There is no word yet on pricing, but at least the memory will come with a lifetime warranty.

    I doubt that it will run at 2133 by default, you will probably have to use load XMP Profiles.

    The only way I could see it being done is maybe using a JEDEC profile vs XMP. Processors have a limit to the maximum supported memory speed, anything above that needs to be tuned manually.

    XMP is an extension of the JEDEC spec so there shouldn't be any issue as long as the laptop owners have access to memory settings in the BIOS.

    would give a nice boost to laptop owners with APU's, even the intel gpu's would benefit.

    The article clearly says that its intended to be used with haswell based processors.... so you can bet XMP will be used. lol
