Qimonda AG has unveiled what it claims industry's fastest new DDR3 components and modules that support operating speeds of 800MHz, 1,066MHz and 1,333MHz and can even be overclocked to 1,600MHz and beyond. The 512Mbit DDR3 SDRAM components and DDR3 unbuffered-DIMMs with 512MB and 1GB densities target motherboard and overclocking memory modules.

Overclocking is a popular technique for getting more performance from a PC system for high-end applications like 3D gaming whereby the microprocessor or memory runs faster than the specified speed. This may increase system performance by up to 30 per cent.

The 512Mb DDR3 components in PG-TFBGA-78 packages are already available and are being shipped to customers. Unbuffered DIMMs with 512MB and 1GB densities (based on the 512Mbit components) are also available now.

Qimonda said that its DDR3 roadmap is focused to support the most important mainstream parts introducing densities of 512MB and 1GB first. Components with higher capacities are expected to follow.

Moreover, the DDR3 DRAM products have been validated on Intel reference platforms.

The DDR3 components and modules will also be exhibited at Computex Taipei event in June 5-9.
