DDR3L is the official name for JEDEC standard DDR3 low-voltage memory, which operates at voltages of 1.35v, as opposed to the 1.5v used by standard DDR3. The new DDR3L memory is compatible with legacy DDR3 systems and will also run at 1.5v although 1.35v voltages are only achieved when the overall system supports them. New DDR3L technology enables an overall memory subsystem power savings of up to 20% over DDR3, and up to 40% memory subsystem power savings over legacy DDR2-based servers. The reduction in memory power consumption also reduces the cooling demands of the overall system.
Crucial DDR3L 1.35v modules are covered by the Crucial Reliance Program, which includes limited lifetime warranties, dedicated toll-free support, and the option of an on-site spares program.
