Micron’s 1-gigabit DDR2-1066 DRAM Components Deliver the Industry’s Fastest DDR2 Speed Grades; 1 & 2-Gigabyte Modules Using Micron’s DDR2-1066 Components Available Now on Crucial.com
Micron Technology, Inc. (NYSE:MU), today announced that its one gigabit (GB) double data rate DDR2 memory components are qualified for use with the Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (AMD) new AMD Phenom quad-core processors, targeting data-intensive, high-end computing applications. The faster speeds of Micron’s new DDR2-1066 memory technology combined with the multi-core performance of the new AMD Phenom processors can increase user productivity for today’s most demanding applications.
“Users can experience a significant increase in computing performance by combining the AMD Phenom processors with Micron’s DDR2-1066 memory technology,” said Brian Shirley, vice president of Micron’s memory group. “Micron’s DDR2-1066 components have been in production for several months now and we are pleased to have successfully qualified our products with the AMD Phenom processors.”
Micron’s DDR2-1066 memory components offer an impressive 33 percent clock speed improvement over DDR2-800 components, currently the industry’s fastest non-overclocked DDR2 speed available. The DDR2-1066 components are produced on Micron’s industry-leading 78-nanometer 6F(2) process and operate at the JEDEC standard 1.8-volts. The 1 GB component density allows for modules in densities ranging from 512 megabytes to 2 GB. Consumers can purchase 1 and 2 GB Crucial-branded memory modules designed with Micron’s leading-edge DDR2-1066 components online at http://www.crucial.com.
