    Despite most observers believing that DDR2 will only rise to the mainstream memory in 2006, major memory makers are all gearing up for the launch of DDR3 chips. Japan-based Elpida Memory announced that it has recently started shipping DDR3 DIMM samples to Intel, while Samsung Electronics and Micron Technology have announced prototypes. 512MB and 1GB DDR3 SDRAM DIMMs will utilize 90 nm process technology and also improved power consumption — 1.5 Volt vs. the 1.8 Volt operation that is currently available in DDR2 architecture. Elpida's device is expected to ship as customer samples by the end of 2005 and that the chip will represent 65% of the entire DRAM market in 2009 according to predicts. This new generation chips should help deliver twice the system performance of DDR2 architecture.
