Elpida: Energy efficient DDR3 memory with up to 1,250 MHz
Currently memory producers are continuously introducing new developments and technologies. So besides Hynix the company Elpida announces a breakthrough.
According to a press release the DRAM producer was able to succeed in developing fast and energy efficient DDR3 memory modules with 50 nanometer structure. Due to the fine production process those modules can either run with very high clock speeds of up to 1,250 MHz at default voltages (1.5 volt) or with a reduced voltage of 1.2 volt. The press release also says that the energy consumption could be reduced by up to 50 percent compared to the 70 nanometer DRAM chips.
Mass production is supposed to begin in Q1 2009.
