In other projects Wikimedia Commons. At least one manufacturer has reported this reflects successful testing at a higher-than-standard data rate [4] whilst others simply round up for the name.

Archived from the original on The two factors combine to produce a total of four data transfers per internal clock cycle. The lower memory clock frequency may also enable power reductions in applications that do not require the highest available data rates.

This is because DDR2 memory modules transfer data on a stqndard that is 64 data bits wide, and since a byte comprises 8 bits, this equates to 8 bytes of data per transfer. Alternatively, DDR2 memory operating at twice the external data bus clock rate as DDR may provide twice the bandwidth with the same latency. These chips cannot achieve the clock rates of GDDR3 but are inexpensive and fast enough to be used as memory on mid-range cards.


These cards actually use standard DDR2 chips designed for use as main system memory although operating with higher latencies to achieve higher clockrates. Both performed worse than the original DDR specification due to higher latency, which made stwndard access times longer. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Views Read Edit View history.

In addition to double pumping the data bus as in DDR SDRAM transferring data on the rising and falling edges of the bus clock signalDDR2 allows higher bus speed and requires lower power by running the internal clock at half the speed of the data bus.

This queue received or transmitted its data over the data bus in two data bus clock cycles each clock cycle transferred two bits of data. It had severe overheating issues due to the nominal DDR voltages.

DDR2’s bus frequency is boosted by electrical interface improvements, on-die terminationprefetch buffers and off-chip drivers. Thus, DDR2 memory must be operated at twice the data rate to achieve jede same latency. Power savings are achieved primarily due to an improved manufacturing process through hedec shrinkage, resulting in a drop in operating voltage 1.


Bandwidth is calculated by taking transfers per second and multiplying by eight. DIMMs are identified by their peak transfer capacity often called bandwidth.

Retrieved from ” https: DDR2 was introduced in the second quarter of at two initial clock rates: DDR2 started to become competitive against the older DDR standard by the end ofas modules with lower latencies became available.

Such chips draw significantly more power than slower-clocked chips, but usually offered little or no improvement in real-world performance. Dynamic random-access memory DRAM.

These chips are mostly standard DDR chips that have been tested and rated to be capable of operation at higher clock rates by the manufacturer.


This packaging change was necessary to maintain signal integrity at higher bus speeds. During an access, four bits were read or written to or from a four-bit-deep prefetch queue. However, latency is greatly increased as a trade-off.
