40nm DDR3 SDRAM
 
Elpida, one of the largest DRAM manufacturers in the industry, have announced that their 2Gb 40nm DDR3 memory modules are coming soon. They say samples are due to ship in November, with mass production beginning before the end of the year. The smaller 40nm process technology allows them to have a 44% higher chip yield per wafer, compared to the current 50nm, and a 100% yield for DDR3 products that operate at 1.6Gbps, they said.
 
They also claim that their 40nm chips use around two thirds less current and support operation voltages of 1.2 - 1.35v, in addition to the DDR3 standard of 1.5v. It doesn't sound like much of a saving, but it should make a large distance in the enterprise and server market, where high amounts of RAM are used. The higher yields should also help to reduce prices and also pave the way for higher density modules in the coming months.

As above chaps, it's regarding using Furmark to check my overclocking is stable. I have never really used a program to check for stabiity and just run Crysis & Warhead as it normaly find a unstabe OC within seconds.

Now what i need to know, how long do i need to leave Furmark running before i can say it's stabe? Also, what are safe temps for this card when overclockng?

I have set it to...

640x480
stabiity test
not fulscreen.

Cheers chaps

Haha. Id say running a full test should be enough to find a unstable overclock. You could use something like ATi Tool

Not sure whats going on here but so far i have...

Core - 700
shader -1465
memory 1200

Now for some reason i'm strugging to go over 700 and i'm not sure what the issue is. I can set say 720 on the core in rivatuner click appy then when i go back it's reverted back to 700? any ideas? driver issue maybe?

The card is an Asus GTX275

Also, i can not get the shaders any higher without a BSOD, surely they shoud go higher?

I saw on a magazine which talk abouts nvidia geform that stress the gpu

Your getting better clocks than me. Using an Asus GTX275, watercooled, and goes unstable after abour 685 on the core. Can get the memory running a bit faster though.

But like somebody else said, I use ati tool and its a nice easy way to test.

Well i managed to get 720 on the core last night which was 100% stable and i'm sure there is more to go. The shaders have left me confused as when i go higher than 1465 it fails, i remember my GTX260 shaders going a fair bit more than reference.

What do you have your memory at? I sort of settled with 1200 as i never really ike pushing the GFX memory on my cards.

Cheers by the way everybody else.
