DDR, DDR2, (G)DDR3 -- Eh?

If - like me - you are beginning to get a little phased with whats happening (or going to happen) in the memory arena soon, you could do a lot worse than read this nice article from Lost Circuits:

Witness some of the magic of DDR-II:

[COLOR=#1951B9]"The first and foremost important aspect is that a slow core can be used to achieve high data frequencies. For example, a 100 MHz DRAM core can be used to achieve DDR400, a 133 MHz DRAM core can output data at 533 MHz. Related and second in line is the fact that a lower core speed will result in lower power consumption since power consumption is a linear factor of the operating frequency. Third, because of the lower frequency, it is possible to lower the operating voltage from 2.5V to 1.8V." [/COLOR]

Hardware geeks head right here.
