Default AMD’s Latest Opteron, Phenom Chips Already Feature DDR3 Memory Support

The new tenth-generation microprocessors from AMD promise to increase performance because of micro-architectural improvements and the increased amount of processing engines. However, it appears that the new chips do hide some additional capabilities under the hood. For example, DDR3 support.

Advanced Micro Devices has always been conservative about new memory types support as each type of memory requires a brand new platform family and having several platform families for one processor is something that AMD cannot afford. However, this does not mean that the company’s chips cannot support new types of memory. Apparently, already now AMD’s latest processors feature DDR3 memory controller.
