Elpida producing 90nm 1Gbit memory modules for DDR-2

By Justin Mann on
Elpida has some hot stuff coming down for DDR2, just in time for the approaching AM2 socket. Using a 90nm process, the new DDR2 memory modules they are producing are 1GBit per module, and officially support transfer speeds of DDR2-800 (400MHz), more than enough for all existing boards with headroom for the AM2 boards that will supposedly support DDR2-800 and higher out of the box. The end result is going to be 2GB and 4GB size DDR2 modules commercially available in a variety of packages. The new modules also feature a wider bus. They'll be available in Q2 2006 for both servers and desktops, probably the 2GB non-ECC module being the most popular.
