DDR3 Reaches New Heights Buffalo Technology DDR3 RAM
 
Memory manufacturer Buffalo has shown off some prototype DDR3 modules that are capable of a blistering 2400MHz (PC3-19200). These modules utilize Elpida 1Gbit DDR3 SDRAM that have a transfer rate of 2.5Gbps.

In order to reach these previously unheard of speeds, the modules require 2.1v and lax timings of 11-11-11-34. Obviously, these settings sound rather high and perhaps a bit disappointing. However, these modules were also tested at the extremely low voltage of 1.5v and were found to be capable of 2096MHz with timings of 9-10-9-24.

The two companies are hoping to pursue the mass production of high-speed, low voltage modules.

What do you think of this new level in DDR3 speed?
