Computex 2006: GEIL And A-DATA Showcase DDR3

At Computex GEIL and A-DATA showcased the DDR3 memory.

Despite the fact the first platforms using it should only be expected late in 2006 or in 2007, A-DATA declared its products would be available as soon as the need arises.

It turned out the company was using Nanya's chips in its modules. A-DATA's DDR3 memory featured latency of 7 which, according to the vendor, is to become the standard for the majority of such modules. The enthusiast memory is expected to have CL of 5. Higher clock rates should boost the performance decreased due to higher timings. The company showed 1333 MHz modules, promising 1666 MHz ones at some later time.

A-DATA's modules lack heatsinks which have long been the de facto standard for the fast DDR2 memory. This makes us think of low energy consumption and heat dissipation. And is further proved by just 1.5V operating voltage.

GEIL showcased DDR3 1066 MHz and 1333 MHz, but didn't disclose any other information saying just that chips were not made by Nanya. Traditionally modules featured passive cooling that potentially promises higher clock rates.
