Aplus technology releases DDR3 memory module that processes information faster than DDR2 and DDR. The memory module uses less power to do the same amount of work. DDR3 saves more battery power, making it especially beneficial for notebooks.
The DDR3 memory comes with a power consumption reduction of 30% compared to current commercial DDR2 modules, due to DDR3's 90nm fabrication technology, allowing for lower operating currents and voltages (1.5 V, compared to DDR2's 1.8 V or DDR's 2.5 V).
The DDR3 memory’s prefetch buffer width is 8 bit, whereas DDR2's is 4 bit, and DDR's is 2 bit.
PC3-6400 DDR3-SDRAM – DDR3 memory is specified to run at 400 MHz using DDR3-800 chips, 6.40 GB/s bandwidth, whereas PC3-8500 DDR3-SDRAM memory is specified to run at 533 MHz using DDR3-1066 chips, 8.53 GB/s bandwidth.
