Elpida develops power-efficient 2Gbps high-speed DDR3
Press release, July 15; Esther Lam, DIGITIMES [Tuesday 15 July 2008]

Elpida Memory announced today that it has developed a power-efficient DDR3 SDRAM in 1Gb densities, which is capable of operating at a speed of 2Gbps.

Elpida's new DDR3 SDRAM is based on a 65nm process technology. Sample shipments will start in September 2008 with mass production expected to begin in October.

Currently, the industry's fastest standard DDR3-1600 supports a data transfer rate of up to 1600Mbps while operating at 1.5V. The new DDR3 SDRAM developed by Elpida uses 35% less operating current compared with the company's existing products and can support an operating speed of 2Gbps, which is considerably faster than the industry standard of 1600Mbps at 1.5V. Also, in response to demand for next-generation low-power products Elpida's new device can operate at 1600Mbps using 1.35V.
