    probualy because for ddr2 it would be pointless to use ghz and ddr3 is still not yet the standard of ram. also theres stuff like 1333 ram which would be 1.333ghz.

    I second the voltage comment. DDR3s only advantage presently is bandwidth, if that.

    I expect to see these modules at 1.6 to 1.7v if anything.

    well for ddr3 its pointless as well i mean its double pumped just like DDR2 so even their zomg 1800mhz sticks are really only running at like 900mhz. the only ram you could use it on is like 2000mhz DDR3 because then its running at 1Ghz

    looks like they're rated at 2.0v . . . that's DDR2 territory :ohwell:

    most DDR3, though, isn't rated over 1.85-1.95v; average is 1.8-1.9v, depending on manufacturer and rated speed.

    it's kinda a gimick, though - even though DDR3 is rated at lower voltage requirements over that of DDR2 and especially DDR, DDR3 with it's higher clocks, faster access speeds, increased bandwidth, etc. tends to pull more juice than DDR2 per clock cycle.
