Crucial Announces DDR2 Memory Availability
Meridian, Idaho, April 7, 2004--Crucial Technology®, a division of Micron® and one of the world's largest direct memory providers today announces immediate availability of PC2-3200 (DDR2-400) and PC2-4300 (DDR2-533) synchronous DRAM modules on the Crucial Web site at http://www.crucial.com. DDR2 is the next evolution in DDR-memory technology and features advancements in voltage, density, and design to achieve speeds beyond the bus speed limitation of current DDR.
Aside from the advantages of higher speed capabilities, DDR2 features a lower operating voltage of only 1.8 volts. Lower voltage decreases power consumption which may increase battery life in portable devices. Unlike current DDR, DDR2 is packaged using only Ball Grid Array (BGA), resulting in smaller packaging and better electrical performance. On-die termination gives DDR2 chips the ability to perform signal termination internally instead of on the motherboard. On-die termination helps systems run more efficiently, potentially lowering overall system cost.
Through Crucial, system builders and end users now have access to Micron's leading-edge DDR2 memory technology for use in the next generation of high-performance, low-power desktops, laptops, and servers. Crucial now offers the following DDR2 modules:
-Crucial® 256MB PC2-3200 (DDR2-400), CAS Latency 3, 1.8 volts, unbuffered DIMM currently priced at $144.99
-Crucial® 512MB PC2-3200 (DDR2-400), CAS Latency 3, 1.8 volts, registered DIMM currently priced at $344.99
-Crucial® 256MB PC2-4300 (DDR2-533), CAS Latency 4, 1.8 volts, unbuffered DIMM, currently priced at $154.99
-Crucial® 512MB PC2-4300 (DDR2-533), CAS Latency 4, 1.8 volts, unbuffered DIMM currently priced at $299.99
