More in August this year unveiled Elpida Memory Chipset DDR3 memories Which will be able to operate at a speed of 2.5 GHz, a speed significantly greater than existing chips used to produce first-class memory modules. The new memory devices are based on an optimal design that uses copper connections and new circuit technology, which, besides allowing them to work at higher speeds, also enables the use of ultra low voltage 1.2 volts. All this is done in accordance with and subject to the technical specifications of the DDR3 standard.
Buffalo, which was one of the first companies to put their hands on These chips, Was able to develop a memory module that reached the speed of the 2.4 GHz. These memory modules use the 2.1 Volt voltage and are, as of today, the fastest memory modules in the world.
The company did not disclose any details about the new memories, as well as the specifications of the test system that succeeded in speeding up the memory frequency to the 2.4 GHz (PC3-19200), but the fact that the memos operated so quickly says there is a test platform that can enable it.
The future of the DDR3 memories, which operate at unprecedented speeds like this, is still obscure, while my employees Intel The new Core i7 include a controller DDR3 Which can not run at more than one GHz. As a result (according to industry sources), the pace of development of Memories Those with a higher frequency frequency will decrease.
The new memory module now exists only in the form of a prototype, but there are many chances of seeing it in the market in the near future. The question now is what will be the future demand for such memories.
