Default Lower voltage memory

What is the status of lower voltage memory beyond 1.35V? I haven't seen anything but maybe I missed it. Is there a target release date for say 1600MHz memory at 1.2V from Samsung or Hynix or something?

The status of DDR3 rated for operation below 1.35v is "available".
1.25v DDR3 1600 can be purchased today.

Oh my mistake I meant lower than 1.35v

I had heard a while back that Samsung was developing "green memory" beginning at 1.2v for servers and I wanted to do if it trickled down.

Is there a particular reason why you want extremely low-voltage DDR3 SO-DIMMs? Most name-brand laptops, don't allow you to change the memory voltage, and will therefore likely just run them at 1.5v anyways.

I had heard Samsung was developing "green memory" for servers and wanted to know what the status was for laptops. There is no particular reason so much as I am currently using these:
