Samsung Green 8GB DDR3-1600 VLP
Memory is probably one of the most volatile markets that a company can enter, especially when we start to drop names like Kingston, Crucial, and Corsair. We know that OCZ exited the memory arena not long ago, so does that mean Samsung is looking to pick up the slack marketshare? Samsung often supplies OEM memory, so it’s rather interesting the company is looking to make more of a splash in the retail market with their latest kit: the Green Series.
The Samsung Green lineup are very low profile memory modules that are power-frugal, and appears to be ideally suited to a setup like an HTPC. These aren’t extreme performance overclocking sticks, but they come with an attractive price tag of only $55 for an 8GB DDR3-1600 kit. They look sleek, the slimline design is rare, but what about performance? Do the Green modules sacrifice too much in speed results? To test this, we’ll pit them against a high performance memory kit to see what happens.
Let’s jump in and take a closer look to find out.
