Micron Technology's DDR3 Memory for High-End Computing Applications is Validated with Intel Platforms

 David Lammers

BOISE, Idaho---Micron Technology, Inc. (NYSE:MU) today announced that its 1 gigabit (Gb) double data rate (DDR)3 memory components for high-end computing applications have been successfully validated with Intel desktop platforms.

Ideal for data-intensive computing applications from PC gaming to super computing, Microns 1 Gb DDR3 products provide the lowest cost-per-bit solution available on Microns 78nm 6F2 process, have a smaller die size premium over DDR2 compared with 512 megabit (Mb) products, offer lower power on modules that can utilize either 512Mb or 1Gb and meet the minimum system density requirements of 1 gigabyte.

Microns strength in advanced DRAM technology has given us the industry leading position in high density memory solutions, and were pleased our DDR3 memory technology is successfully operating on Intel desktop platforms, said Brian Shirley, vice president of Microns memory group.

Microns DDR3 memory technology is the next step in the evolution of DDR (Double Data Rate) SDRAM memory technology, said Pete MacWilliams, Senior Fellow, Intel Corporation. DDR3 memory technology provides increased bandwidth, lower power and better signal integrity to support Intels platforms in 2007 and beyond.

Additionally, Microns DDR3 products support data rates of 800 megatransfers per second (MT/s) to 1,066 MT/s with clock frequencies of 400 megahertz (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 Microns 1Gb DDR3 components are available to select customers with production expected to begin early next year. Microns 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 (JEDEC is the leading developer of standards for the semiconductor industry). These components will support module densities from 512 megabytes (MB) through 4 gigabytes (GB) 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, helping to enable even higher density applications.
