Elpida Memory today introduced the industry's first 1-Gigabit XDR DRAM based on a x32-bit configuration.
The new XDR product features the industry's fastest
ultra-high speed of 7.2GHz, which is faster than any
GDDR5 memory chip, and provides a data transfer rate of
28.8 Gigabytes per second with a single device, making it
an ideal choice for such high-bandwidth, high-performance
full HD-capable applications as game consoles, digital
televisions and Blu-ray disc recorders.
The XDR device is manufactured using Elpida's 65nm
process technology and utilizes a 1.5V low voltage
operation and an x32-bit interface. It provides a
one-chip solution that, compared with two x16-bit
configuration 512 Megabit XDR DRAMs, consumes 35-40% less
power and requires less space.
Sample shipments of the new XDR have already started and
mass production is scheduled to begin in April 2009.
