20 percent lower power consumption


California-based Micron Technology, Inc. has started sampling its 1Gb DDR2 chips, based on the new 68nm process.

The new manufacturing process, along with Micron's 6F2 technology, has resulted in a die size of 56 mm2. As you would expect, the new chipsets are more energy efficient, and the company promises approximately 20 percent lower power consumption compared to previously available chips.

Micron's 68nm DDR2 aims at the server and mobile markets, but due to high DDR3 prices, the new chipsets might find their place in desktop machines, as well. Mass production is slated to start early next year, while DDR3 at 68nm will follow later on.
