DDR2 started to become competitive against the older DDR standard by the jexec ofas modules with lower latencies became available. Archived from the original on During an access, four bits were read or written to or from a four-bit-deep prefetch queue. Views Read Edit View history.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.


In other projects Wikimedia Commons. Such chips draw significantly more power than slower-clocked chips, but usually offered little or no improvement in real-world performance.

These chips cannot achieve the clock rates of GDDR3 but are inexpensive and fast enough to be used as memory on mid-range cards.

Bandwidth is calculated by taking transfers per second and multiplying by eight. Alternatively, DDR2 memory operating at twice the external data bus clock rate as DDR may provide twice the bandwidth with the same latency.



DDR2 was introduced in the second quarter of at two initial clock rates: Thus, DDR2 memory must be operated at twice the data rate to achieve the same latency. Power savings are achieved primarily due to an improved manufacturing process through die shrinkage, resulting in a drop in operating voltage 1.

DIMMs are identified by their peak transfer capacity often called bandwidth. Retrieved from ” https: This packaging change was necessary to maintain signal integrity at higher bus speeds. The lower memory clock frequency may also enable power standarc in applications that do not require the highest available data rates.

It had severe overheating issues due to the nominal DDR voltages. 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. These cards actually use standard DDR2 chips designed for use standafd main system memory although operating with higher latencies to achieve higher clockrates.

In addition to double pumping the data bus as in Standarrd 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. However, latency is greatly increased as a trade-off. DDR2’s bus frequency is boosted by electrical xdr2 improvements, on-die terminationprefetch buffers and off-chip drivers.


Both performed worse than the original DDR specification due to higher latency, which made total access times longer.

DDR2 SDRAM – Wikipedia

This is because DDR2 memory modules transfer data on a bus that is 64 data bits wide, and since a byte comprises 8 bits, this equates to 8 bytes of jddec per transfer.

These chips are mostly standard DDR chips that have been tested and rated dd2r be capable of operation at higher clock rates by the manufacturer. The two factors combine to produce a total of four data transfers per internal clock cycle.

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.
