Notebooks can now take advantage of optimized battery life and portability with a new line of low-voltage, high-bandwidth DDR3 memory modules introduced today by Micron Technology, Inc. The modules are designed using the industrys lowest 1.35-volt 1-gigabit (Gb) DDR3 components, allowing for even greater power savings compared to standard 1.5-volt DDR3. Microns new modules are available in densities up to 2-gigabytes (GB) now, with 4GB samples coming this fall.
Across the board, we are making our DRAM more efficient from both a power and performance perspective which ultimately empowers users to be more productive, said Robert Feurle, vice president of DRAM marketing at Micron. Our new DDR3 notebook modules offer approximately a 20 percent reduction in power usage compared to standard 1.5-volt modules while maintaining DDR3s high performance advantage, enabling a desktop-class computing experience for portable computers.
