Micron Technology Inc. has announced sample availability of 1Gbit DDR2 components capable of running at 1066Mbpssaid to be the industry's fastest for a main memory.

Used primarily in data-intensive computing applications, such as video editing or high-end gaming, the new DDR2-1066 memory modules increase user productivity and make images on screen seem more life-like, the company said. This device promises a 33-percent speed improvement over DDR2-800, currently touted to be the fastest DDR2 speed.

"The move to DDR2-1066 provides a significant increase in computing performance for our customers, without any necessary changes to the system design," said Brian Shirley, VP of Micron's memory group. "With DDR2-1066, the lifespan of today's mainstream DDR2 systems can be extended."

The DDR2-1066 components are produced on Micron's 78nm 6F? process and operate at the JEDEC standard 1.8V. The 1Gbit component density allows for modules in densities ranging from 512Mbytes to 2Gbytes.

Samples of the 1Gbit DDR2-1066 components are available for select customers. Volume production is expected Q3 2007.
