Twice the Bandwidth SAMSUNG offers the industry's largest selection of fully validated advanced SDRAM, including both today's standard, DDR2, and next-generation DDR3 products. DDR3 memory will provide at least twice the bandwidth of DDR2, with data transfer rates at up to 1.6Gb/s and eventually beyond. This will enable much-improved 3D graphics, which will directly benefit users of the new Windows Vista operating system.
Lower Power Consumption DDR3 also improves the efficiency of multi-threaded operations, enhancing the performance of today's new multi-core systems. DDR3 not only allows for higher system performance, but it also uses only 1.5V of power compared to DDR2's 1.8V, thereby extending battery life by approximately 20 minutes.
