Micron's DDR3 Memory Validated For Intel Platforms
Micron Technology announced that its 1 Gigabit DDR3 memory components have been successfully validated with Intel desktop platforms.
Micron's 1Gb DDR3 products provide the lowest cost-per-bit solution available on Micron's 78nm 6F2 process, have a smaller die size premium over DDR2 compared with 512 Megabit products, offer lower power on modules that can utilize either 512Mb or 1Gb and meet the minimum system density requirements of 1 Gigabyte.
DDR3 products also support data rates of 800 megatransfers per second (MT/s) to 1,066 MT/s with clock frequencies of 400 MHz to 533 MHz respectively, doubling the speed from DDR2. The DDR3 supply voltage has been reduced from 1.8V to 1.5V, reducing power consumption by up to 30 percent.
Evaluation samples of Micron's 1Gb DDR3 components are available to select customers with production expected to begin early next year. Micron's 1Gb DDR3 components will be available in various output configurations (x4, x8 and x16), and will be fully compliant to the most recent JEDEC DDR3 specifications. These components will support module densities from 512 Megabytes through 4 Gigabytes and a variety of module types including UDIMMs, SODIMMs, and RDIMMs.
A 2Gb DDR3 device is also expected to be available from Micron early next year.
