    Elpida and Buffalo Technologies have unearthed a memory standard never before heard, and thought by many, as the limits of current DDR3 technology, given the silicon fabrication process current DRAM chips are made with. The elusive PC3-19200 standard has been achieved. Elpida has tested stable, a prototype memory module that runs at 2400 MHz DDR (1200 MHz actual clock-rate). The modules use Elpida's 2.5 Gbps DRAM chips.

    These speeds, however, come at the cost of latencies and voltages. The module was tested stable at 2400 MHz only at 11-11-11-34, and a voltage of 2.1 V, which is high, by DDR3 standards. However, the module locks a surprise when it comes to the same numbers: The module was tested stable at 2096 MHz, at amazingly low 1.5V, with much tighter timings of 9-10-9-24. The companies wish to put this to mass production soon.

    Well, I think I may have found my ram when I make the move to DDR3. 2000MHz on 1.5V is astounding.

    Well, most boards won't do below Jedec voltages, but if it does CAS9 at 2000Mhz and 1.5V, I bet they'll do CAS6 1333MHz at 1.5V. Imagine the timings you could achieve at 1333Mhz with 1.9 or 2.0V. :D

    Does 2000 MHz @ 7-7-7-x / 1.8-ish V look possible?

    well it seems DDR3 is picking up pace pretty fast

    Wherever I can find the iron.
    Buffalo FTW. I love my Firestix. My 1066's run 1230 on 2.2v, and I only paid like $110 for 4GB. As i've mentioned before, Elpida is making some amazing chips right now, so all those people who get stuck on Micron D9's, say hello to Elpida.

    Thats amazing that we're already reaching the limits of ddr3. I have a feeling this time next year mainstream ddr3 will be MUCH more affordable.

    Interesting on the 1.5v end. High for the 2400 mhz. I was hoping DDR3 would go from 1333 up to like 3.0ghz :D
